The Arabs in Israel: Overlapping Identities Between Peace and Conflict

Temple Shalom

Dates: Thursday, December 20, 2012
Time: 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Speaker: Professor Majid Al-Haj

Dr. Majid Al-Haj is currently a Distinguished Visiting Professor at the School of Social Work, Rutgers University.

This lecture deals with the status, identity and orientation of the Arabs in Israel. It delineates the main factors that have affected the development of the Arab citizens in Israel in the economic, social, and political spheres. It does so through a multidimensional approach that examines simultaneously the formal policy toward the Arab population, Jewish-Arab relations in Israel, and regional developments connected with the Palestinian-Israel conflict, in particular the fluctuation between peace and continuing confrontation. The lecture also integrates the personal experience of Dr. Al-Haj, who has been the most senior Arab in the Israeli higher education system.
