Professor Morad Elsana will discuss his new book, Indigenous Land Rights of the Bedouin: A Comparative Case. Introducing the Negev–Bedouin land issue from the international indigenous land rights perspective, this comparative study suggests options for the recognition of their land. The book demonstrates that the Bedouin land dispossession, like many indigenous peoples’, progressed through several phases that included eviction and displacement, legislation, and judicial decisions that support acts of dispossession and deny the Bedouin’s traditional land rights. The final chapter suggests that the basic elements needed for Bedouin land recognition exist in the Israeli legal system.
Professor Elsana will discuss issues raised in the book with Amal Elsana Alh'jooj, prominent Israeli Bedouin feminist and Executive Director of the International Community Action Network (ICAN) at McGill University in Montreal. The moderator will be Washington College of Law Professor David Hunter.
