Al-Quds University - Deanship of Scientific Research
Background: This research aims to challenge the conventional neoclassical approach to economics in Palestine and promote a more interdisciplinary and holistic understanding of the subject. By examining the shift from political economy to neoclassical economics globally, this study will explore the impact of neoliberal ideologies in education on economics students and in return the world's economic policies. Drawing from the global context, this research will focus its analysis on the education of economics in Palestine. The research will rely on literature reviews, one-to-one interviews with Palestinian economists and professionals, and surveys distributed to economics students to gain a comprehensive understanding of the current situation in Palestinian universities and the implications of neoclassical thinking.
