While the empowering and organizational aspects of womens activisms in the Middle East have been well-canvassed, few works detail the professional and personal practices of charismatic activists leading rights-based initiatives. In response, this book explores Amals activisms and how she navigates her identities in sociopolitical relationships with Israeli Jewish, Palestinian, al-Naqab Bedouin, and international representatives. The authors argue that by focusing on activists biographies we can further understand the pluralisms, strategies of identification, and dialectics of recognition typifying contemporary third sector politics in the Middle East.
