What is it about?
A generation of Palestinians witnessed a historic, mass uprising (the First Intifada) during their transition from youth to adulthood. Did this lead to distinctive views of the new Palestinian police force that was created in the uprising's wake? We find that young men from this generation, in particular, held more negative views toward the police than men from other generations. We suggest this is due to the particular sensitivity of these young men to armed violence and policing.

Why is it important?
Membership in a particular "generation" might shape an individual's political views, but we do not have much research on this topic from countries outside the US and Western Europe. We hope that our approach will inspire other researchers to study political generations in other contexts.
