Bedouin Relocation, Negev Land Disputes, and Israeli Government Policies

Featuring Morad Elsana

In January, the Israeli government attempted to demolish the Negev Bedouin village of Ummal-Hiran to create a Jewish town on the site, resulting in three deaths. This is only the most recent incident in the long-running series of land disputes between the Bedouin and the state. This presentation will focus on the state's planning policy in the Negev and its consequences for Jewish-Bedouin coexisitence.
