In this interview for STATUS/الوضع, host Malihe Razazan speaks with Muna Dajani who explains how the international donor community exacerbates the system of water inequality in Palestine and obscures Israel’s hegemony over water resources.

She is currently a PhD student at the London School of Economics (LSE) at the Department of Geography and Environment. Her research will aim to identify the link between identity, resilience and farming under belligerent occupation, where farming acquires political subjectivity as a form of cultural resistance. Her research interests are environmental politics, community-led resource management, and social impacts of climate change.
