The Prawer Plan: Implications for Palestinian Bedouin in the Naqab

29 Jan 2014


Approved by the Knesset in June of 2013, The Prawer-Begin Plan, if implemented, will see the destruction of over 40 unrecognized Palestinian Bedouin villages in the Naqab (Negev) desert. The Plan is the second step taken by the Israeli government to confiscate Palestinian land in the Naqab, after the "Negev 2015" plan in 2005 and the appointment of the Goldberg committee in 2007.

Dr. Morad Elsana will discuss the implications of the Prawer Plan in more depth, focusing on the impact of the plan's goals on the thousands of Palestinian Bedouin living in the Naqab. Dr. Morad Elsana finished his Doctorate degree of Juridical Science from the American University, Washington College of Law in 2013. Prior to his doctorate studies from 2001- 2009, Elsana served as a Lawyer and director of Adalah - The Legal Center of Arab Minority Rights - the Naqab (Negev) Office. Elsana also worked as a legal advisor for Genesis Community Advocacy Organization in Beer Sheva and as pro bono legal advisor for the Regional Council for Unrecognized Villages in the Naqab (Negev).
