Marginalizing Palestinian development: Lessons against peace

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Continuing the discussion from Development 48.3 Helga Tawil Souri argues that since 1993 American development projects in the Palestinian territories have focused on 'peace-building'. Tawil Souri underlines that peace-oriented American funding has not strengthened the Palestinian economy but marginalized indigenous civic institutions, resulting in further impoverishment of Palestinians and the continuation of a political conflict invoked as a reason for global terrorism. The failures of American development projects in the Palestinian Territories have resulted in further justifying violence against the US.
