Has Israel reached the limits of growth? The economic and ecological absorptive capacity of Israel/Palestine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Some scholars argue that Israel is overpopulated and call for revising Israel’s “Law of Return” and reducing density within ecological limits. This article argues that ideological, practical, strategic, and political implications of this radical review of “the economic absorptive capacity of Palestine” preclude simple implementation of apparently objective corrective measures.
