Thesis Title: Palestinian Young People’s Constructions of Human Rights: A Comparative Study of the Delivery of Human Rights Education in Palestinian Schools

Summary of Research:

Whilst human rights sit in tension with aspects of Islamic religious and Arab cultural tradition, rights discourse has been appropriated by Palestinians to articulate their “struggle” for rights. Human rights culture has been propagated across Palestinian society from the security forces, to the refugee camps; therefore, the West Bank provides a unique case in order to ascertain the perspectives of young people (aged 13-15) in relation to their attitudes towards human rights. Therefore, research has been conducted with young people who attend Private, Government and UNRWA schools. This research has operationalised the ethical principles of the transformative paradigm by adopting participatory strategies from a children’s rights-based approach. The researcher has established two Young People’s Advisory Groups (YPAGs) consisting of Palestinian students. They have been involved in the development of the research design, the methods, and the analysis of the data.
