This chapter attempts to contribute to the growing literature on adolescents and political violence by providing a detailed assessment of the specific types of activism Palestinian adolescents engaged in during the first Intifada (in addition to the commonly explored degree of victimization). Analysis of data from several hundred Palestinian youth shows some evidence of impaired functioning associated with conflict exposure (particularly for females), but also evidence of enhanced functioning for both males and females associated with their degree of activism.
