This chapter offers further insight on citizenship in Palestine after 1939 and until the end of the mandate in 1948, and the changing levels of the Arabs' political subjectivity. The differences between the multiple doctrines, vocabularies, expressions, and concepts of citizenship during the first two decades of the mandate administration are reflected in the legislation on citizenship passed by the British administration and in the reactions by the Arab citizens to that legislation. It explores the immediate reactions of Great Britain and the Palestine administration to the increased Jewish immigration to the territory and the changes made to the mandate's citizenship legislation in the wake of the Peel Commission's recommendations.

Keywords:   citizenship, Palestine, Arabs, mandate administration, Great Britain, Jewish immigration, Peel Commission
