AbstractThis thesis explores attitudes of younger generations towards a two state solution for peace in the Arab-Israeli conflict and strives to find the motivation behind these attitudes. A common assumption is younger generations are more peace-minded, but this thesis discovers attitudes are not based solely on one’s generation or age, but rather by a combination of other factors. Through research and a survey of youth living in the Middle East, this thesis questions the theory that ideals and attitudes are formed from simply being young. The findings in this thesis could help and inspire further research to discover what truly are the main influential factor in our attitudes and beliefs about the Arab-Israeli peace process.
