Acknowledgement

This dissertation was written under the supervision of Professor Hellmut Wollmann, Department of Political Science & Public Administration, Philosophischen Fakultät III, Humboldt University-Berlin. I wish to express my sincere gratitude to him for his suggestions and comments throughout all stages of the dissertation.

My close friend Mr. Raji Sourani, Director of the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights, was from the very beginning of great material, logistic and psychological backing. He was always there and never left me alone. To him and his staff who did not hesitate to offer me all forms of help, deep thanks.

My brother Hamada, Emad, and my mother Fatima, who beard the intolerable burden during my writing of this dissertation, as well as my best friend Asa’ad Ashour, were always in support. To them warm love.

The Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst (DAAD) was the main institution which rendered me financial help and support at the various stages of this dissertation. Without its help and support, this dissertation would not see the light. This fact alone merits all my gratitude.

To the memory of my father Musbah, and my brother Musa, this dissertation was written.
