These are the set of questions which SOAS economist Dr. Sahar Taghdisi-Rad has provided convincing and stimulating answers to in her recent book, The Political Economy of Aid in Palestine: Relief from Conflict or Development Delayed? The author challenges the mainstream economic theory of aid effectiveness, highlighting its failures, and instead calls for a move towards adopting a heterodox political economy approach, providing a comprehensive framework for analysing the impact of aid in conflict-affected contexts.

A Political Economy of the Middle East is the most comprehensive analysis of developments in the political economy of the region over the past several decades, examining the interaction of economic development processes, state systems and policies, and social actors in the Middle East. This chapter examines the numerous catalysts for conflict within the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) region. The authors look at the conflict-inducing factors from a twofold perspective. He compares Brazil and South Africa because of their similarities: They are upper-middle-income countries, and highly unequal-both in terms of income and racial status.

Despite for many years receiving the highest per capita aid worldwide, the economies of the West Bank and Gaza Strip have failed to achieve any lasting developmental outcomes and suffer from major weaknesses which undermine their very survival. This book argues that the dominant, mainstream approach to the study of aid and aid effectiveness is theoretically and empirically inadequate for a comprehensive understanding and analysis of the workings of aid in developing countries, particularly those undergoing conflict. This book examines the nature of donor operations in Palestine, highlighting the political and ideological determinants of aid allocation and effectiveness, and focussing on the role of trade-related donor assistance in Palestine, more commonly known as Aid for Trade. It discusses how such trade-related assistance is only another instance of donors working ‘around’ the conflict, as opposed to taking it into account; and how aid to Palestine cannot bring about significant improvement as long as the Palestinian economy is fundamentally affected by Israeli occupation, settlements and blockade. It argues that unless restructured and more carefully targeted, aid can only act as a temporary relief mechanism. Furthermore, the book sheds light on critical areas within Palestinian territories that are in need of development and require significant and immediate attention at both national and international level.
