Analysing Desecuritisation: The Case of the Israeli-Palestinian Peace Education and Water Management
This book applies securitisation theory to the present Israeli-Palestinian situation with a particular focus on the potential for a desecuritisation process arising from Israeli-Palestinian cooperation/coexistence efforts in peace education and water management. Stemming from the application of securitisation theory to the Israeli-Palestinian case, the book aims to explore the limits and prospects of this theory as a theoretical framework. The book adds to debates over the problems and prospects of reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians. Thoroughout the book, the prospects for reconciliation in the Israeli-Palestinian case are explored through analysing both desecuritising and securitising processes. Within this context, the book sheds light on the ways in which antagonistic relationships can be changed over time.
