By Sergio DellaPergola

Demographic trends are essential elements in the search for a resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. An examination of demographic trends illustrates the deeper political, cultural, religious, social, economic and environmental factors that contribute to the conflict. In order to understand the connection between demography and conflict, the Jewish and Arab populations of Palestine should not be looked at as two separate and hostile groups, but as an integrated societal system. This essay review the demographic trends among Jews and Arabs in Israel and Palestine, projects population trends between 2000 and 2050, and discusses policy implications of the emerging demographic shifts.
