Dr. David Wesley speaks on Jews, Arabs, and Government Officials: Power
Relations Inside Israel Today
WHEN: Monday, February 23, 2009 4:00 pm
WHERE: Brooks Hall Library, University of Virginia
Most of those speaking about Israel today, including former President Carter
in his book Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid, are concerned with Israeli
policy towards the territories it occupies and the situation in those
territories; Dr. Wesley's work is concerned, on the other hand, with
internal Israeli relations - a different aspect of that situation.
Dr. Wesley uses the example of attempts of Israeli Arab local governments to
develop industry in their towns inside Israel and to become joint managers
of new regional industry currently managed by their Jewish neighbors and
often located on land expropriated from Israeli Arab towns. While Israeli
laws are for the most part egalitarian in nature, their implementation is
often more selective. Analysis of the cases dealt with by Wesley has
relevance also for other countries.
Dr. David Wesley is an anthropologist with a PhD from Tel Aviv University
and author of State Practices and Zionist Images: Shaping Economic
Development in Arab Towns in Israel.
