Levy, Gal and Mohammad Massalha. "Within and beyond Citizenship: Alternative Educational Initiatives in the Arab Society in Israel." Citizenship Studies 16.7 (2012): 905-917.
In recent years, Arab-Palestinian citizens in Israel are in search of ‘a new vocabulary of citizenship’, among other ways, by resorting to ‘alternative educational initiatives’. We investigate and compare three alternative schools, each challenging the contested conception of Israeli citizenship. Our findings reveal different educational strategies to become ‘claimants of rights’, yet all initiatives demonstrate the constraints Arab citizens face while trying to become ‘activist citizens’.
