The Southern Region: From Socio-Economic Drain to Valuable Resource
Author: Rafi Bar-El Policy Research

The public’s relationship with the South and especially the Negev has always been characterized as a pattern of center-periphery, where the periphery serves a poor second to the role of the center.

The main argument of this paper is that this model does not adequately describe the relationship and that a new characterization could help lead new policies for the growth of the southern region.
