Abstract

Voicing is the capability to share life circumstances and be heard when doing so. It fulfills an important human function, vital for individuals’ wellbeing. Capabilities are what a person can do or be, and a society that enables their realization has a foundation for a theory of justice. This study examines the voicing opportunities of Palestinian-Israelis ‒ a large marginalized population in Israel ‒ through the main Israeli broadcast channels. These channels are the main platforms for voice in society, however the voice of marginalized populations is usually absent from them. We conducted a quantitative content-analysis of Palestinian-Israeli interviews on these channels, as well as in-depth qualitative interviews with Palestinian-Israeli viewers and listeners, to understand their expectations. Findings suggest that the Israeli media prevent Palestinian-Israelis from voicing, despite their strong desire to do so. The study contributes to understanding the media’s role in enabling voice, and Palestinian-Israelis’ current opportunities to voice.
