Handcuffed Protectors? Palestinian Fatherhood-Protection Unlocking its Chains

Abeer Otman

This article takes the reader through the social-geographies and psycho-politics of protection and fatherhood. It examines the challenges to fatherhood roles and modes in which Palestinian fathers protect their families and homes in the context of colonialism in Occupied East Jerusalem. It shares and engages with fathers' own voices and experiences, using a bottom-up, feminist, and decolonial analysis to reveal the complexities, meanings, and concerns of fathers in their role as protectors. The voices gathered revealed a multilayered understanding of fathers' role as protectors in the framework of psychosocial modes, meanings, techniques, transformations, and acts within an insecure context.
