No-Man’s-Land: Hearing the Voices of Palestinian Young Men Residing in East Jerusalem
Dajani, Khuloud Jamal Khayyat
Through a qualitative study of adolescents and young men in East Jerusalem, the scope of this study explores the “crisis in masculinity” that is occurring in East Jerusalem. In the course of this work, we interviewed 45 young men and 18 young women about their concerns. In addition to violence, there were other topics of concern that we identified in our prestudy of this work. This included their schools and their views of sexuality, family, and communal life. This study aims to develop a comprehensive picture of these struggles of Palestinian male adolescents in East Jerusalem, recognizing that masculine identity is a key issue.
