The structural framework created by the Oslo ‘peace process’ in the 1990s has led to a shrinking Palestinian civil space in the West Bank. Building on prior findings, the paper demonstrates how this development has manifested. By conducting field research, it further investigates how non-state actors still advance their claims. As they face a variety of distinct challenges including a discriminatory Israeli legal system, smear campaigns, restrictions posed by the Palestinian Authority, and decreases in funding, effective claim making within the status quo is unfeasible. However, by changing working areas and adapting their right-seeking activities to emerging obstacles, non-state actors continue to pursue long-term social change.
