Exploring what freedom of movement means to young people in Gaza. Freedom of movement is a fundamental right that determines people’s ability to exercise agency over their lives. For those who enjoy it, it can almost be taken for granted. For years, the Strip’s civilian population of two million has been systematically denied the right to freedom of movement. Even with Rafah Crossing operating more regularly, travel abroad via Egypt remains limited. Ongoing movement restrictions imposed by Israel affect every aspect of life in the Strip: Families are split apart, economic activity is hindered, and access to opportunities is denied.
