Transforming Relationships between Israeli Settlers and West Bank Palestinians: Assessing the Case of "Roots"
Keywords: Israel-Palestinian Conflict Settlers Palestinians "Roots"
Abstract: Against the background of a preliminary assessment of a relatively new Israeli-Palestinian initiative known as “Roots”, which has provided a framework for cooperation and relationship transformation to occur between Israeli settlers and neighboring West Bank Palestinians; this paper will present an advanced evaluation of a number of its key activities based on extensive qualitative and quantitative empirical data. Based on these findings the impact of this organization on both the micro and macro levels will be assessed with particular reference to prominent theories/approaches relevant to Israeli-Palestinian peace building.
