Making the Bedouin Towns Work
In recent years, the government of Israel has attempted to “solve” the problem of the Bedouins living in the Negev by moving a large number of them into seven towns near Beer Sheva. The monograph provides an extensive analysis of the situation of the Bedouins in these towns and offers some explanations as to the causes. It also analyzes the policies that were pursued, and some of the reasons for their limited success. The study concludes with proposals for a strategic urban development approach to begin to rectify the situation. This paper provides a brief synopsis of the study, with emphasis on the proposed policy framework.
