Speaker(s): Dr Adam Hanieh
Chair: Dr Kamil Mahdi
Recorded on 24 February 2014 in 1.04, New Academic Building.
The lecture will draw on Adam Hanieh's 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. The talk will discuss 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.
Adam Hanieh is a senior lecturer in development studies at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS), University of London. His latest book, Lineages of Revolt: Issues of Contemporary Capitalism in the Middle East, was published by Haymarket Press in November 2013.
