Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

7 Scopus citations


Israel‘s development of industrial zones in the peripheral Galilee region is a major element of its national planning policy. The paper examines the economic impact of three of these industrial zones-Carmiel, Tefen, and Ma'a lot- on Arabs and Jews in the region. Data on key employment and input and output indicators were collected through a survey of all firms in the three estates. In 1989 economic benefits generated by the three industrial zones were disproportionately enjoyed by the Jewish sector, thereby reinforcing patterns of interethnic economic gaps and minority dependence.
