Abstract

This paper analyzes the process of planning for the Israeli Bedouin of the Negev as a manifestation of the dialectics of globalization. The Negev region has been an arena for a civil struggle between the Bedouin and the state for control over territorial resources. Forced into an urban existence they begun a long-term campaign of resisting state plans. We show how they recruit their local cultural narrative to affect the planning process, how these processes may be viewed as a globalized impact and localized response, and the position this process takes on the globalization-localization scale.
