‘Good Governance’ for State-Building in the West Bank, Palestine: Fayyadism, Hybridity and Sovereignty

Advancing few Major Arguments: Fayyadism entrenched the occupation and Palestinians are no nearer to self-determination and sovereignty; The ‘governance without a state’ framework is peculiar in the Palestinian case; State and non-state actors co-govern, but sovereignty remains with the occupation power; The old-fashioned model of state-building (neoliberal economic policies and Weberian monopoly of violence) will keep in failing in Palestine due to the overarching Oslo Accord framework; Fayyadism as a good governance approach for state-building is an anti-hybridity model/paradigm.
