Promoting Change within the Constraints of Conflict: Case Study of Sadaka Reut in Israel
Ross, Karen
Current Issues in Comparative Education, v15 n2 p35-52 Spr 2013
This article explores the approach to transformative education utilized by Sadaka Reut, a binational civil society organization in Israel that works with Jewish and Palestinian youth. I examine three central tools Sadaka Reut uses to achieve its goal of educating youth for social change: using personal experiences as the basis for discussion; emphasizing personal-structural links; and implementing uninational activities within a binational framework. I argue that though the organization's approach holds potential for appealing to a broad audience and for fostering transformation amongst participants, the strength of dominant discourses in Israeli society places significant constraints on Sadaka Reut's work and limits possibilities for widespread success.
