Settler Colonial Stduies

Reason for embargo
This paper unfolds the history of collaborative resistance in Palestine since the first waves of Zionist immigration at the end of the nineteenth century. Relaying on Lefebvre and Soja, the chapter conceptualises this type of resistance in terms of ‘thirdspaces’ and problematises the history of the creation and sharing of these spaces by Palestinians and Jews. Tracing back efforts to produce such thirdspaces from those carried out by the Palestine Communist Party, joint industrial action before 1948, immature attempts at binationalism and other political outfits in the period post-1948, my claim is that these endeavours cannot succeed without an Israeli acknowledgment that Zionism is a settler colonialist movement still busy these days in trying and complete the dispossession of Palestine.
