  • Permission to Converse: Laws, Violence, and Roadblocks to Palestinian Political Expression

    Palestinians living on different sides of the Green Line make up approximately one-fifth of Israeli citizens and about four-fifths of the population of the West Bank.

Geopolitical boundaries fragment Palestinians into ever smaller groups.
