    Abstract

    This study explored political attitudes, awareness and values among 1753 Israeli-Jewish and Israeli-Palestinian adolescents aged 15 to 17 from different localities. The findings show that Palestinian adolescents reported more trust in the political system, were more aware and had a more formulated opinion of the political system than their Jewish colleagues. In addition, it was found that more religious adolescents showed more political awareness and involvement. In general, gender gaps in political participation measures were larger among Arab adolescents compared with Jewish adolescents. The researchers suggest that some of the findings can be explained by the potential role of participation in political activities by minority adolescents in the development of adolescents' political perception and attitudes.
