Intergroup dynamics have been a central vector in long-lasting identity conflicts around the globe. In Israel/Palestine, the conflict has not been reduced to the same level of sustained peace as it has in other countries. The conflicting groups often get involved in increasingly destructive forms of reciprocating violence, which fuels narratives that lead to further cycles of violence. This thesis examines whether social identity theory is a useful framework for understanding the conflict between Israel and Palestine, and discusses what role the United States plays in mitigating this conflict.
