Throwing Stones --A Palestinian Boy's Manhood: The Affects of Youth Imprisonment on Palestinian Males
This research project studies the impact of imprisonment on men living in occupied territories in the Middle East. First, I will assess the systematic incarceration of male children in the Middle East. Second, I will study the current employed and education levels of men who were incarcerated in their youth. Finally I will investigate the family dynamics and shifting gender roles within the nuclear families of youth who were imprisoned. This project seeks to address the importance of maintaining children rights in processes of incarceration and after release, while shedding light on the systematic impediments youth incarceration creates on the development of households.
