We introduce the class of weak Schur spaces, i.e., Banach lattices in which relatively weakly compact sets and almost order bounded sets coincide. There follows a detailed study of Banach lattices in which every semi-normalized, order bounded, weakly null sequence contains a subsequence satisfying a lower, resp. an upper, 2-estimate. From the previous results we obtain conditions under which non-Dunford-Pettis operators between certain classes of Banach lattices fix a copy of ℓ2.
