This chapter examines the relationship between Palestinian youth, information and communication technology (ICT), and political activism. The emergence of the Palestinian information society began in 1995, the first year of widespread use of the Worldwide Web. Youth skilled in ICT have been pioneers in positioning post-Oslo Palestine within the newly globalized society. Universities, schools, and nongovernmental organizations have played a major role in the support of community networks and emerging forms of youth activism. Since the second Intifada, connectivity at schools and at home has become a major tool for staying informed of events, and reporting on matters that affect youths personally, or concern their friends, families, neighbors, classmates, teachers, schools, and other youth facilities. The Internet has become increasingly central to everyday Palestinian life, acting as a tool for information, commerce, recruitment, social organization, and nonviolent political activism.

Keywords:   Palestinian youth, information and communication technology, Internet, schools, youth activism, non-violence
