The Role of Clans as an Informal Authority in Achieving Societal Peace in the Palestinian Society
This study investigated the role of the Palestinian clans, as an informal authority, in achieving societal peace in Palestinian society. The study used the descriptive survey method. Moreover, a questionnaire was designed to study its variables. The study population included experts in social affairs; university and legal academics, and the sample consisted of 60 people.
The findings ultimately reflected that the clan was and remains an integrated and cohesive political, social and economic unit in society. Moreover, the clan plays an important role in controlling the behaviour of members of society. It also plays a major role in preserving the entity of society from external dangers. Accordingly, the researcher presented several recommendations, the most important of which are represented in the necessity to spread a culture of peace, social communication, love, tolerance, human rights, and applying the principle of peaceful coexistence among members of society. It is necessary to avoid doing the social practices that negatively affect the Palestinian society, and to use the traditions and customs of the authentic Palestinian clans.
