Struggling for a Just Peace

University Press of Florida

Despite the challenges of unilateralism and separation and the lack of significant socio-political change, activists continued their struggle for peace and justice in 2008. This chapter discusses how some groups modified their approach to change through the mechanism of reconfiguration, which explicitly targets social and political boundaries that have conventionally divided activist groups. The Alternative Information Center and remnants of Ta'ayush, some of who joined the new umbrella group Hitchabrut-Tarabut, sought to create new spaces for interaction, particularly between different “internal” groups, such as Ashkenazi and Mizrahi Jews or socioeconomic and political activists within Israel and Palestinians from the West Bank, East Jerusalem and Israel. Sabeel, Rabbis for Human Rights and Tarabut sought to integrate religious and secular activists for peace and social justice. In seeking to overcome the structural violence of the occupation in both Israeli and Palestinian societies, reconfiguration efforts aimed for what Galtung calls structural peace.
