By Dalia Ben-Rabi, Sharon Amiel, Talal Dolev, Fida Nijim

Myers-JDC-Brookdale Institute, 2009

The Bedouin population of the Negev is undergoing a very significant transition from a nomadic to urban lifestyle. The Bedouin constitute one of the poorest communities in Israel, which has broad implications for the economic and social well-being of their children. The services for this population are very under-developed and all of these problems are particularly severe among residents of the widely scattered, small communities that are not recognized by the state and that constitute about half of the Bedouin population of the Negev.
