Palestine and Rule of Power: Local Dissent vs. International Governance explores how the rule of power relates to the case of occupied Palestine, examining features of local dissent and international governance. The book considers expressions of the rule of power in two particular ways: settler colonialism and neoliberalism. As power is always accompanied by resistance, this book engages with and explores forms of everyday resistance to the logics and regimes of neoliberal governance and settler colonialism. The book interrogates wide-ranging issues and dynamics related to international governance, liberal peacebuilding, statebuilding, and development, the claim to politics, and the notion and practice of resistance.
