They represented Adalah, Ajeec-NISPED, Negev Coexistence Forum, Ma’an Develop Center and A New Dawn in the Negev. The result of the study showed that NGO:s are working with community participation, creating leadership, raising awareness, volunteering, and cultural sensitivity. The interviews, further, revealed that organisations play a crucial role in bringing about social change. The analysis of the findings was informed by theories of empowerment and advocacy. (Less)
