Building a Successful Palestinian State
The United States, the European Union, Russia, and the United Nations-along with Israel and the Palestinian Authority-all officially support the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. This study focuses on a single analytical question: How can an independent Palestinian state, if created, be made successful? This book, a collaboration between two units of the RAND Corporation-RAND Health and the RAND Center for Middle East Public Policy-examines what it will take to put the new state on the road to stability and economic, political, and social prosperity over the first decade of its independence. The authors examine options for strengthening the governance of the new state and the structures and processes that will ensure its public safety and security. They describe approaches for promoting the state's economic development, access to safe and adequate supplies of water, health and health care, and education, identifying ways that leverage Palestine's many strengths and address the many challenges a new state will face. Finally, the authors estimate the investment required over the first ten years of statehood to help ensure security, build infrastructure, and facilitate the success of the new state.

Behind the Wall
Behind The Wall (BW) is an online portal for Palestinian youth voice. It provides a platform for teenagers to speak honestly and openly about their opinions and experiences in the Occupied Territories. The BW publication does not advocate any political, religious, or cultural agenda. It merely offers a transparent window into the hearts and minds of Palestinian youth. BW believes that this neutral approach represents the only solid foundation for genuine understanding of Palestinian teenagers. Ramallah Friends School 10th grade students currently serve as BW's primary writers.

The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy
Contrary to common belief, the material and diplomatic support the United States provides to Israel cannot be explained by the two country's shared strategic or security interests or compelling moral imperatives, argue Harvard scholar Stephen Walt and University of Chicago political scientist John Mearsheimer in a recent study. Instead, they argue that U.S. policy in the region is "due almost entirely to U.S. domestic politics, and especially to the activities of the Israel Lobby." Download their Foreign Policy Study.

Gaza Strip Economic Development Strategy
The Israeli withdrawal from Gaza Strip has formed a historical transformation in the Arab-Israeli conflict. Meanwhile, the international and regional attitude supported this step as a part of the Road Map and the beginning of the establishment of a Palestinian independent state on 1967 occupied territories that co-exist side by side with Israel. To achieve that, stability and regional cooperation are very important for development because the international community and donors give priority for the economic and social revitalization in Palestine.
the first time
since 55 years, the Ministry of National
Economy has worked on the
preparation of an economic plan for developing
Gaza Strip over the
coming three years. This plan has been prepared
by the public sector in
cooperation with the private and civil society
sectors including 80
local experts. The plan focused, through its
first dimension, on the
political, environmental, economic, legal and
social issues and on
basic concepts represented in transparency,
improvement of living standards, poverty combat
and creating the
appropriate investment environment.
