On the Potential for Improved Conflict Resolution through Entrepreneurship in Palestine
MetadataShow full item record
The purpose of this research project is to gain insight into the role of the Israel-Palestine conflict in the entrepreneurial environment of Palestine. It takes into account both aspects of the conflict itself and reactions to the conflict in order to suggest policy changes to improve the prospects of entrepreneurs and for conflict resolution in Palestine. The paper analyzes a variety of different economic, political, and social data to develop a cohesive picture of the entrepreneurial environment, and to see whether there are statistical correlations between certain subsets of that data that could indicate areas where policy changes would be most effective. The results of the study suggest policy changes or new policy programs to aid in the peace-building process in Palestine, based on social contact theory, the recommendations of other scholars working in similar regions, as well as the economic and security data analyzed here.
