Main Article Content
Youth in Palestine have been framed as disengaged from politics, in comparison with their spectacular activism during the two intifadas, and as unaccomplished citizens, as a result of their political cir- cumstances. is article addresses a rethinking of the notion of citizenship, in the context of Palestin- ian youth, towards a more nuanced conceptualization. My investigation departs from a participatory photography exercise carried out in 2014, with a group of ve young Palestinians living in the city of Nablus. rough the use of visual methods, which o er an alternative way of seeing their experiences, I discuss young people’s ordinary practices and everyday encounters with the notion of citizenship and consider how a micro-sociological approach based on the concept of lived citizenship may allow us to move beyond passive/engaged and personal/political binaries, typical in citizenship studies.
