It is with deep sadness that we have learned about the passing of Mahmoud Alnaouq. He was killed in the shelling of Gaza, alongside his family, at the end of October.
Mahmoud was a researcher at PalThink, a consortium partner in the EMBRACE project. He worked to better understand the blockages to democracy in Palestine.
Omar Shaban, Director of PalThink, writes about his young colleague:
“In August, Mahmoud, 26 years old, travelled to Malaysia to participate in a conference representing PalThink. It was his first time ever to exit Gaza, it was his first time to be on a plane. At the end of September, Mahmoud received an acceptance letter from an Australian University for a Master’s degree. Mahmoud’s ambition and dreams were without limit. This war kills people, kills hope, kills positive change makers, it kills everything that is beautiful.”
Our sincere condolences go to Mahmoud’s family, his friends and colleagues.
As the war continues, we are deeply concerned about our remaining project partners in the region.
