Palestinian-Israeli Economic Relations: Repudiating the Paris Protocol?
Speaker(s): Professor Ephraim Kleiman
Recorded on 23 May 2013 in Wolfson Theatre, New Academic Building.
Professor Kleiman will discuss the repeated calls in the Palestinian Territories for the abrogation of the Paris Protocol, regulating their economic relations with Israel, which have risen against the background of a stalled Palestinian-Israeli peace process, the desire for political change and social justice that underlay the Arab Spring.
Ephraim Kleiman is Don Patinkin Emeritus Professor of Economics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His research interests over the years included international trade, public finance, and history of economic thought, as well as the role of wage and financial indexation under inflation.
