(p.48) 3 Interrogating “Peace” and “Nonviolence” in the Israeli-Palestinian Context
Struggling for a Just Peace

Maia Carter Hallward

University Press of Florida

This chapter compares and contrasts ideal-typical Israeli and Palestinian approaches to “peace” using Galtung's concepts of positive and negative peace as well as definitions of peacebuilding from a variety of sources. Using an orientation to peacebuilding and nonviolent resistance focused on actions and deeds rather than words alone, the chapter explores the different approaches to and conceptions of “peace” found in the Israeli and Palestinian peace movements and examines social, political and geographic obstacles to peace activism such as military checkpoints, the separation barrier and the West Bank road system, as well as sociocultural pressures within each society and other differences, such as language, that pose obstacles to joint peace activism.

Keywords:   peacebuilding, nonviolent resistance, Galtung, separation barrier, settlements
