Palestinian NGOs in Israel: The Politics of Civil Society by Shany Payes
One in every six Israeli citizens is a Palestinian Arab. While much has been written about the Palestinians of the West Bank and Gaza, the struggle for political rights by Palestinian citizens of Israel remains largely unexplored. Shany Payes offers a fresh look at this struggle through analysis of the increasingly growing sector of Palestinian non-governmental organizations. Charting the political history of these associations over the last quarter of a century and running right up to developments during the recent Intifada, she analyzes the political repression of Palestinian civil society by the Israeli state and attempts made by Palestinian NGOs in Israel to build a civil society in the face of such oppression.
