Rawan Arar Published on Nations and Nationalism Journal

Rawan Arar, a graduate student at the sociology department and recipient of one of this year’s FISP awards, had her work “International Solidarity and Ethnic Boundaries: Using the Israeli–Palestinian Conflict to Strengthen Ethno-National Claims in Northern Ireland” published in the journal Nations and Nationalism.

In the article she writes:

This study examines flags, graffiti, murals and political speech on display in Northern Ireland that advocate for either Israelis or Palestinians. Through the concept of ‘borrowed legitimacy’, I acknowledge the strategic use of the ethnic boundary in expressions of international solidarity.
