50 years of occupation
This report captures the economic, developmental and humanitarian impact of occupation-related practices and policies after 1967. The report focuses on two intertwined perspectives of the ongoing impact of occupation. The first encapsulates the political economy of occupation-related policies, including resulting structural distortions, and the consequential “de-development” process. The second traces the humanitarian impact of those economic distortions and the numerous policies related to Israel’s occupation which impact the daily lives and livelihoods of Palestinians in the oPt, and particularly explores the humanitarian impact, as it relates to issues of movement, access to essential services such as health care, and the impact of occupation on children and youth.
