Our Team
 

MAS employs a small core team of research and administrative staff and hires the services of additional researchers as the need arises. Over the years, MAS has built strong ties with all major Palestinian researchers of economics within Palestine and in the diaspora, and continues to draw on their expertise and to count on their involvement in the research programs that it conducts. Thus, the list of the junior research staff who work as part of the core team does not give the full picture of MAS’s research capacity. The Publications section provides a more complete idea of the identity of the many high-profile contributors to the Institute.
Following is a list of MAS’s core research, administrative, and technical personnel with their respective positions and educational backgrounds:
