Israel's Dual Regime Since 1967

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article discusses the establishment of Israel's peculiar dual domination
regime since 1967, claiming that the structure of this dual regime makes the military elites a crucial political actor. The dual regime is based on geographic separation between two distinct regimes of control and legitimization. On one side of the border Israel is defined as a democratic state, ruled by parties voted in general open elections based on universal citizenship. On the other side there is a military rule of a Palestinian population denied citizenship, which is defined as “temporary” and “external” to the democratic state. The borders between the two areas have been easily blurred due to the geographical contiguity between them, by creating direct economic dependency and by settling the occupied territories with Israeli citizens.
