Abstract

The panel title: 'Nonviolent conflict transformation and power asymmetry: The Israeli-Palestinians struggle for peace and justice'.This panel will explore the journey towards justice and peace in Israel and the occupied Palestinian
territory through bottom-up transformational strategies inside an asymmetric power system. Conflict
management and resolution theories have struggled to engage with the complex dynamics of power
asymmetry in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the distinct failures of the Oslo Accords. In response,
the papers on this panel propose a theoretical framework for peace practice that relies on the
escalation of nonviolent conflict including protest, collective resistance, and nonviolent direct action.
This panel aims to disrupt the discouraging narratives emerging from upper-level peace efforts and
proposes that elite actors should be pressured by grassroots level actors to revise their peacebuilding
plans towards an end to occupation. This panel weaves together a discussion of fundamental themes
such as the relationship of power to nonviolent political action, the transformation of grievance into
resistance, the efficacy of cooperation and dialogue, the challenge of transnational civil and political
societies, and the barriers facing nonviolent peace action. This panel’s analysis benefits from a strong
Palestinian voice, which grounds the discussion in current and relevant developments. The panel
members hope to demonstrate that viable peace action alternatives exist for bitterly intractable
conflicts.
