Solidarity Activism: Power and Democracy Among Israeli and Palestinian Anti-Occupation Activists.
This study will focus specifically on the Israeli Jewish activists engaged in civil resistance campaigns against their own government, alongside and in solidarity with Palestinians activists. It will explore the power dynamics between Israeli and Palestinian activists, questioning how Israeli activists contribute to the political struggle to end the Israeli occupation of the Palestinians. In doing so, it will consider the role and influence of a privileged group of activists acting in solidarity of an oppressed group and how this affects democracy in decision-making processes. This is relevant to all situations where privileged individuals and groups act in solidarity of others.
