A joint project of the Negev Coexistence Forum for Civil Equality and Adalah| Funded by the European Union
This two-year joint EU-funded project led by Adalah and the Negev Coexistence Forum (NCF) began on 1 October 2018 and will run through 30 September 2020. The project aims to advance the human rights of 240,000 Arab Bedouin citizens of Israel living in the Naqab (Negev), both in unrecognized and recognized villages and towns.
The Bedouin citizens in the Naqab are the most marginalized sub-group of the Palestinian Arab minority in Israel. They face institutionalized discrimination by the state, including the denial or neglect of basic socio-economic services, and severe violations of their land and housing rights through home demolitions and land confiscations.
Through a combination of legal action, international advocacy and media outreach, community participation, and documentation and publications, Adalah and NCF are working to protect Bedouin communities at risk of forced displacement and to improve their living conditions, including securing access to schools, health clinics, water, public transportation, and more.
