Palestine National ICT resources

While there is certainly not a wide selection of literature available on the ICT policy in the Palestinian territories, especially published by the government, there is some, and most is in English. There is only one published national ICT policy, and almost no literature published by the government available. The World Bank and Portland Trust reports provide a comprehensive view of the sector in the territories.

With Gaza and the West Bank undergoing different developments in terms of ICT and facing differing political challenges, information concerning ICTs in Palestine is often inconsistent. While some address each specific territory, others address the territories as a whole.

    I think that you chose an interesting country to study for the semester, especially because it is an occupied territory. Do you think that occupation has affected Palestine’s ICT development, especially in comparison to Israel?
