Geographic Fragmentation: A Stark Impediment to the Development of the Palestinian Economy
MetadataShow full item record
The Palestinian economy first came under the direct control of Israel after the June 1967 war. From 1967 until the signing of the Oslo Accords in 1994, Israeli policies toward the Occupied West Bank and Gaza resulted in a Palestinian economy that remained underdeveloped and subsidiary to the Israeli economy. In fact, investment in infrastructure and other components needed for a viable economy and access to resources were extremely limited or even altogether prevented by Israeli authorities. The Palestinian economy increasingly came to resemble conflict economies.
