Prof. Oren Yiftachel

2013 Keynote Lecture: The Political Geography of Israel/Palestine: Apartheid or Confederation?

oren lecture

Prof. Oren Yiftachel of Ben-Gurion University in Beer-Sheva/Israel will discuss the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict from his lenses as a political geographer. He will address the dilemma among academics, scholars, politicians and policy makers about the possible future relations between Israelis and Palestinians. Can the two states solution still be a viable one? Will the Israeli occupation deepen and continue to resemble apartheid regimes? 
 
Thinking about the Israeli-Palestinian ongoing conflict from a comparative perspective, Prof. Yiftachel has written extensively on Ethnocratic Regimes in Israel, Sri Lanka, Estonia and South Africa (Ethnocracy: Land and Identity Politics in Israel/Palestine).
Besides his academic work, Prof. Yiftachel is engaged and well known for his contribution to Human Rights issues in Israel.
