Does the Palestinian Authority Still Hold Relevance in the Present Day?


Under increasing pressure from the United States to reform the Palestinian Authority, President Mahmoud Abbas has appointed a new prime minister, Mohammed Mustafa, who is primarily known for his expertise in economics rather than politics. The unexpected move comes at a time when violence is on the rise in the West Bank and Gaza, raising questions about the future of the PA and whether the new leadership has the support of the Palestinian people.

Hosted by James Bays, the panel discussion on this appointment includes Tahani Mustafa, a senior Palestine analyst at the International Crisis Group, Mansour Shouman, a Canadian Palestinian citizen journalist with experience reporting from Gaza, and Mustafa Barghouti, the Secretary-General of the Palestinian National Initiative.
