Decolonising Palestinian Political Economy: De-development and Beyond

Mandy Turner (Editor), Omar Shweiki (Editor)

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


This volume provides cutting-edge political economy analyses of the Palestinian people as a whole - those living in the occupied territory of the West Bank and Gaza Strip (including annexed East Jerusalem), those living within Israel and refugees in neighbouring Arab states. It rejects the dominant, conventional approach that has fragmented the Palestinians into separate and distinct groups (some thereafter named as 'Arab-Israeli', 'Bedouin', etc.), and which has reduced those regarded as 'the Palestinian people' to only those who reside within the occupied territory. The book challenges this intellectual fragmentation by reuniting Palestinians in one historical political-economy narrative of a people experiencing a common process of dispossession, disenfranchisement and disarticulation. It is a must-read for scholars, students and activists who wish to understand the historical origins and contemporary realities that face Palestinians.
