- Political Elites And Tribalism In Palestine
- Published at:Not Found
This research paper is devoted to the study of the relationship between political elites and tribalism in Palestine. It is an attempt to examine the social backgrounds of political elites, whether in power, or in the opposition or on the side, and to see if tribal delineation or ancestry has an impact on the shaping of political elites. To put it in another way, the research studies the possibilities of becoming part of the political elites due to tribal backgrounds. The major question in this regard is: does tribalism play a role in deciding who should or can become part of the political elites? If yes, to what extent?
