Gal Kramarski is a PhD student at the department of Social Anthropology at the University of Cambridge. Her ethnographic study focuses on the workings of development interventions in East Jerusalem, and the encounters between Jerusalemite Palestinians who facilitate these state-led projects, and the state. Prior to moving to the UK, she did an MPhil in social anthropology at Cambridge. Before that, she received a master’s degree in International Development from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (2018), and a BA in Islam and Middle Eastern Studies and Political Science also from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (2016). When living in Jerusalem, Gal worked with different NGOs, and brought together research and practice in her daily work, alongside with being active in civic society associations which promote peace, equality and justice in the city.
