Lecture by Dr. Sara Roy: The de-development of Gaza, policy or collateral damage?


Dr. Sara Roy of the Center for Middle Eastern Studies at Harvard University, will talk about what she calls the economic de-development of Gaza. The lecture is organised by the Nederlands Instituut Palestina-Israel (NIPI) in collabroation with the foundation Groningen-Jabalya and Studium General Groningen.



"De-development is defined as a process which undermines or weakens the ability of an economy to grow and expand by preventing it from accessing and utilizing critical inputs ne eded to promote internal growth beyond a specific structural level. In Gaza, the de-development of the economic sector has, over two decades of Israeli rule, transformed that economy into an auxilliary of the state of Israel."
