Provision and Use of Social Services among Bedouin Arab Women in Israel.

Alean Al-Krenawi, John R. Graham

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article uses interviews with 376 Bedouin Arab women in the Negev region of Israel to examine their social needs as well as their awareness and utilization of social services. The problems experienced by the Bedouin Arabs reflect the challenges of adjusting to the process of modernization. Social services are only modestly responding to this need. Promoting women's education as well as the community's political, economic, and social empowerment may help professional services have greater relevance to, and use by, this minority indigenous people.
