Corporate Governance Manual for Family Firms in the Palestinian Territories

This seminal publication — the first of its kind in Palestine — was informed by extensive consultations with local experts, family firms themselves, and other stakeholders including lawyers and academics.

CIPE partner the Palestine Governance Institute (PGI) engaged in extensive outreach to the business community in developing these guidelines, including conducting a baseline assessment through interviews with over 100 owners and managers of family firms across the West Bank and Gaza.

The corporate governance manual helps fill the governance gap by providing a well-defined framework that will guide the owners and managers of family firms through their options for governance reform in such areas as: the legal form of the company, board functions, committee structures, management models, sustainability, internal controls, risk management, transparency, evaluation, and accountability.
