ISM at the Crossroads: The Evolution of the International Solidarity Movement
Abstract: 

 

The International Solidarity Movement (ISM) has emerged as the most visible face of international activism in Palestine. This overview charts ISM's development from the intersection of various independent initiatives-Palestinian, foreign, and Israeli--in the early months of the Aqsa intifada into a loose but self-generating movement sufficiently effective to be the object of stepped up Israeli pressures. The report concludes with a discussion of various options open to the movement in the face of new challenges.
