Neoliberal Development in Palestine and the Regional Context

In this talk, Dr Adam Hanieh will discuss his new book, Lineages of Revolt, and recent fieldwork in the West Bank to examine the political economy of Palestinian neoliberalism in the most recent period. Dr Hanieh will explore the essential contours of Palestinian Authority development strategy, its links to donor-led imperatives and the Israeli occupation, as well as the wider regional political economy. In addition to addressing the differential outcomes of this development model, the talk will look at the political implications and potential points of resistance to neoliberalism in the Palestinian context.
