My thesis looked at two important questions. First, why are violence and crime prevention services unequal in a multicultural, proclaimed democratic state? Second, how does an individual’s background shape their access to the state and to services for addressing interpersonal domestic violence (IPDV)? Underlying this question was my interest in specifically understanding how the context of Israel shapes violence at home, between partners. I focused on a few demographics: Orthodox Jewish community, more Secular Jewish communities, immigrant populations, including women without permanent legal status, and Palestinians with Israeli citizenship. I explored this question through five hypothesis statements and a qualitative analysis of my interviews. I developed a theory that focused both on victim-police-organization interaction and levels of access.
