The paper examines the assumed role of civil society organizations and NGOs in governing the Palestinian Security sector in the light of principles and rules of Good Governance. It departs from an assessment of the policies and practicies of this sector from a democratic prespective pertaining to committment to the rule of law and respect to human rights. Then it examines the structural and cultural causes that obscure this committment. Based on that, the paper presents the role CS and NGOs played in this respet especially examining the prospects for a major role in governinig the security sector. It also assesses the obstacles that prevent such a role.
