Provision of public services to the post-nomadic bedouin society in israel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

12 Scopus citations


Bedouin nomads in southern Israel have been sedentarising and semi-urbanising in recent decades. During this process, they have become part of a public service provision system. This is a unique process as usually nomads rely on internal resources for attaining the goals of these services, whereas here they are obliged to use external resources. Such a process, therefore, is bound to be a conflictual one with many barriers. An analysis of provision of public educational and health services reveals that they have been spatially, functionally and culturally constrained, thus putting the Bedouin within a stressful situation.
