The Foundation was invited by the Foreign & Commonwealth Office at the request of the Attorney-General to undertake a scoping visit to the Occupied Palestinian Territories to assist in the advancement of Rule of Law work there. The Foundation and the Bingham Centre for the Rule of Law then submitted a joint funding bid for 2014-2015 to the Arab Partnership Fund in March 2014 which was accepted.  The Foundation, for its part, is to concentrate on issues concerned with the more effective running of the criminal courts and human rights law training for the judiciary.  This major bid has been accepted.
