A quarter-century of contribution to Palestinian economic thought and policy making


To complement the Institute’s mission of cooperating with decision makers and organizations active in economic and social development, and of raising the level of public knowledge and participation in formulating economic and social policy in Palestine, MAS is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.

MAS has had a special role in the past quarter century in interacting with Palestinian developmental needs, successive Palestinian governments, and partners from the private, academic, and civil sectors, as well as a role in building fruitful working relationships with the Arab and international donor community.
