Chapter Summary

This chapter examines the gradual transformation of the political field in the District of Jerusalem, which brought in a new mode of politics. The discussion focuses on three questions: How did new actors and new means of communication change political practices in the District of Jerusalem? In what ways and for whom was 'Palestine' a social space that might serve as the basis for a common territorial identity? And what topics became the subject of district-wide political debate? The chapter examines four groups of institutions that provided the groundwork for trans-regional public spheres in the District of Jerusalem: transport and communication infrastructure, educational institutions, print culture and social fora.

Keywords: District of Jerusalem; educational institutions; Palestinetrans-regional public spheres; politics; print culture; social fora; transport and communication infrastructure
