Abstract:     
Tawil-Souri’s key question is how to use the concept and practice of enclosure in comparative terms, and how this practice, discourse and concept function. In this regard she analyzes the role of the Israeli state regime/apparatus in relation to other spatial ‘players’ or ‘forces,’ and issues such as globalization, migration, neo-liberalism, as well as legal, economic, and demographic changes at the expense of Palestinians and specifically Gazans. She adds that digitally, enclosure takes place thanks to the privatization of knowledge and information, while digital enclosure raises the issues of asymmetrical access to information resources, databases, and processing power. She gives several examples of the digital enclosure of Gaza, including among others telecommunications, internet and television.
