Adalah is an independent legal center for human rights, registered in Israel as a non-profit organization. Founded in 1996, Adalah promotes the rights of Palestinian Arab citizens of Israel and the rights of Palestinians living in the occupied territories.
In order to achieve these goals, Adalah seeks to advance rights to land, planning and housing, civil rights, political rights, cultural rights, religious rights, women’s rights and the rights of prisoners.

To achieve these goals, Adalah:

- Provides judicial advice;
- Organizes seminars, conferences and workshops, and publishes reports on judicial matters.
