[ePalestine] Guide for Journalists Reporting on the Palestinian Economy

GUIDE FOR JOURNALISTS REPORTING ON THE PALESTINIAN ECONOMY

(last updated 31/5/2019)


Journalists from around the world are covering the Trump administration’s announcement of the June 25-26, 2019 “Peace to Prosperity” economic workshop in Bahrain. The nonexhaustive list below is provided to assist journalists to connect with representatives of various entities who can authoritatively speak about the Palestinian economy or the various aspects thereof. The information provided is all public information. Sadly, not all those listed have an English website and many may not speak English. Journalists are encouraged to engage translators where need be and not rely solely on sources who speak English, or who may be easily accessible.

+++

Journalists are strongly encouraged to purchase the decisive directory (English) on Palestine from PASSIA at any bookstore in Palestine.


Another excellent online English directory may be found at the website of the publication

    [ePalestine] Al-Shabaka: Unifying Palestinians Through Education: Lessons from Experience (by Sam Bahour)

    Arabic link below - الرابط العربي أدناه

    Al-Shabaka, The Palestinian Policy Network

    Unifying Palestinians Through Education: Lessons from Experience

    By Sam Bahour



    EXCERPT:

    "Geographic fragmentation and its ensuing economic, cultural, and societal fallout are a disaster for a people. The more we studied the various groups of potential students for the university, the more we learned about how each geographic fragment has developed in very distinct ways. Nationalism aside, the Palestinian student coming from Jericho does not necessarily have much in common today with those coming from Nazareth or Gaza or Dubai or Ein al-Hilweh refugee camp or Boston. Israeli leaders know well that the more Palestinians are denied the right to mingle in a shared space, the less likely they are to ever pose a serious threat to the hegemony of Israel between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River."
