Podcast – International Aid to Palestine with Alaa Tartir

In the first episode of Shifting Tides, Elif Zaim and Michael Arnold talk with Dr. Alaa Tartir, Program Advisor to Al-Shabaka, the Palestinian Policy Network about the political economy of aid to Palestine. They discuss the Oslo Accords, why aid has failed the Palestinian people and the aid development paradox, how aid sustains the Israeli economy and subsidizes the financing of the occupation, how Arab aid factors into this equation, and whether a new paradigm can be established as an answer to the current challenges and predicaments.
