This chapter discusses the development of media and technology in Palestine in the wake of the Oslo Accords. For the first time in their modern history, the Palestinians were afforded, by the accords, the freedom for collective self-expression through mediated forms, such as radio and television. Palestinians were also permitted to build their own telecommunications infrastructure for land and mobile telephony, establish digital services, and engender an industry that would eventually make up a significant amount of the Palestinian GDP and play an important role in Palestinian society. However, the accords also inhibited the formation of these very industries. None of these media fields would be representatively or geographically national, many have operated quasi-illegally, and all of them continue to be hindered by Israeli policies and by the conditions of Palestinian Authority-international funding agreements that Oslo made possible.
