Identity shifts and conflict transfromation - Probing the Israeli history debates

Strömbom, Lisa LU (2013) In Mediterranean Politics 18(1). p.78-96
Abstract
This article investigates into narratives of Israeli history and identity and ways in which those can be understood as linked to the transformation of intractable conflicts. By using the case of Israeli New History, this study elaborates on the interplay between master and counter commemorative narratives of identity and history, and the potential impact of that interaction when it comes to the development of conflict. The Israeli case exhibits an elaboration on societal boundaries and understandings of identity, which makes it apt to illustrate processes in which new understandings of history tie into the development of conflicts.
