Description:

“The Palestine Economic Policy Research Institute, or Ma’had Abhath As-Syasat Al-Iqtisadiya Al-Filastini (MAS), is an autonomous non-profit establishment based in Ramallah. The institute is dedicated to producing sound, innovative policy research aimed at fostering economic and social development in Palestine.

Founded in June 1994, MAS began operating at its East Jerusalem-based headquarters. However, restrictions on access to Jerusalem as well as other constraints imposed by Israeli authorities forced MAS to relocate to… Ramallah in 1996.”
