In this doctoral dissertation Lior Volinz explores how, and to what end, state security actors pursue security pluralization and privatization in Jerusalem and what the implications of these processes are for the (re)production of differentiated citizenship and its negotiation in Jerusalem. Using the case study of Jerusalem, a city marked by the Israeli military occupation and civil annexation of Palestinian East Jerusalem, he argues that the differential allocation of rights, resources and political decision-making is not merely a by-product of security privatization and pluralization, but can instead be its desired goal.
