Gal Kramarski a PhD candidate at the social anthropology department. Her study focuses on the workings and politics of development schemes and the ethical dilemmas faced by development workers. More specifically, she studies the life histories and experiences of Jerusalemite Palestinians who work for Israeli state-led development projects aimed at improving livelihood in East Jerusalem and are thus uniquely situated between their occupier and their communities.
Prior to her PhD, Gal studied at the social anthropology department’s MPhil programme. Before that, she received a master’s degree (Magna Cum Laude) in International Development from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (2018), which included a six-months internship in Morocco, and a BA in Islam and Middle Eastern Studies and Political Science also from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (2016).
