I have finally uploaded my thesis to the net. It is titled:
It takes a social psychological look at conflict resolution theory; incorporating basic human needs theory and applies it to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict.
The thesis identifies that human beings have 4 basic emotional needs - esteem, meaning, identity and emotional stimulation; and 4 basic rational needs - control, security, justice and rational stimulation. It defines peace as being the satisfaction of these 8 basic needs. In the case of the Palestinian-Israeli conflict peace between both parties can only be obtained by mutual satisfaction of these 8 basic needs. The thesis argues that the Israeli quest for security cannot simply be obtained by superior military force or higher fences but must seek to balance the Palestinian fundamental needs such as justice; and the Palestinian quest for justice can only be obtained by satisfying Israel's basic needs such as security. The needs of both parties are complementary to each other.
