The Economy of the Occupation (EOC) is a research project of the Alternative Information Center, a joint Palestinian-Israeli organization. In the years 2005-2013, fifteen publications were published on various topics related to the political economy of Israeli occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, and to various aspects of the Israeli and Palestinian economies.
The publications, called “socioeconomic bulletins” were numbered in volumes 1-30, as some were single-issues and some double. All were edited by Shir Hever, who also authored 25 of the volumes and co-authored two.
According to the publication’s mission statement, the EOC aims to offer a “new approach to the economic situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territories and Israel” and to “provide accessible and singular analyses of the socio-economic interests behind the Israeli occupation of Palestine.”
All of the publications were published in English, and some of them were also published in Hebrew and Arabic. Several were also translated into German, Italian or Japanese.
