About us

The Representative Office of Denmark in Ramallah represents the Danish Government.

The Danish Representative Office in Palestine was opened in Jericho in 1994. In 1998 it was moved to Ramallah.
The overall political objective of the Danish engagement in Palestine is to support the realization of a two state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, encompassing the State of Israel and an independent, democratic, sovereign and contiguous State of Palestine living side by side in peace and security.

The representation offers consular services and provides the Danish Government with analyses and advice related to the political, economic and social developments in Palestine, including the Palestinian-Israeli peace process. It is also responsible for Denmark’s humanitarian and development assistance programmes in Palestine. The main objectives of this assistance are;

1) Supporting state-building efforts;
2) Promoting economic development;
3) Strengthening human rights and democratic accountability; and
4) Humanitarian assistance including support for UNRWA.

Denmark works closely with a number of international likeminded donors and supports the implementation and enforcement of all UN and EU obligations, rules, and guidelines relevant to the situation.
