Article
Full-text available
Since 1993 the international community has invested more than $24 billion in ‘peace and development’ in the occupied Palestinian territory (oPt). That aid was meant originally to support the Oslo Peace Process through economic development. However, neither peace nor development has been realized, and both seem increasingly unlikely. While examining...
Article
Full-text available
Since 1979, Canada has had two distinct foreign policy approaches toward the Palestinians and Israeli-Palestinian Peacebuilding. This article labels those “Pearsonian” and “Harperian”. To understand both approaches, it starts with the Jerusalem Embassy crisis in 1979 and moves on through the Middle East Peace Process, assessing Canada’s policy up t...

On the 25th Anniversary of the Oslo Accords, this report assesses the approach taken by 9 of the top Western donor countries/institutions that have for decades determined the structure of development aid in the Occupied Palestinian territory (OPT). It does this by focusing on the period 2010-16 through a quantitative keyword and qualitative analysi...
Article
Full-text available
Though Western donors have poured billions into the Palestinian economy since the Oslo Accords, the funds have not resulted in development and regional peace. In this policy brief Al-Shabaka Policy Analyst Jeremy Wildeman examines and compares donor perceptions of Palestine through an assessment of donor reports to comprehend how donors have contri...
Article
Full-text available
The European Union (EU) and its member states shoulder a significant part of the aid devoted to the Palestinian Authority (PA) and Palestinians in Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT). They do so according to a development aid model that is driven intellectually by the World Bank, under US political oversight. This article locates European aid in t...
Chapter

This chapter interrogates EU development aid to the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region after the 2011 uprisings/revolts to understand the role aid plays in shaping the contemporary relationship between the EU and ex-colonies in the MENA region. The chapter begins by noting the historical evolution of Europe’s relationship with MENA countrie...
Article
Full-text available
While often overlooked, the Middle East has been a pivotal geographical and discursive space in Canadian foreign policy and national identity formation. The region was the birthplace of Canada’s liberal internationalist foreign policy identity, Pearsonianism, and the national myths associated with it. The Middle East also appears to be where Pearso...
Chapter
Full-text available
Over US$40 billion has been spent by international donors as foreign aid for Palestinians living in the occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem and Gaza Strip since the Oslo Accord was signed in 1993. This makes Palestinians one of the highest per capita recipients of non-military aid in the world. That aid was designed as development programming meant...
Article

Chapter
Full-text available
Western liberal democracies have been intimately involved in the creation of the modern Palestinian state. They have played a particularly important role promoting a peace model for Jews and Palestinians that is predicated on their separation into separate national homelands. This dates back to British Imperial rule over ‘Mandatory’ Palestine, a pa...

The Arab Diaspora Conference maintained the spirit and hope of the people of the Middle East for democracy, dignity and human rights. It aimed to empower individuals from the Arab Speaking Diaspora who were willingly or forcibly exiled because they exercised their rights to freedom of expression, as well as those who remain in their lands and do no...

Conference Paper
Full-text available
The purpose of the Symposium was to launch the beginning of an ongoing, pluralist discussion on Canada and Palestine. Though Palestine looms large in Canadian foreign policy and domestic politics, there is very little work published in any scholarly discipline that focuses squarely on Canada and Palestine. The Symposium worked to change this when f...

The approach has been dictated and driven by Western donors who have used their power to radically refashion Palestinian institutions and the economy while...
