Distributive justice and regional planning: The politics of regional revenue-generating land uses in Israel

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In this article, I examine the connection between the economic strength of a local authority and the distribution of space in the region. The goal of this article is to examine the degree to which the distribution of revenue-generating land uses in Israel accords with the Rawlsian principle of distributive justice, and how that distribution affects the economic and social condition of development towns in comparison with that of the adjacent regional authorities. I also consider the role of the Israeli planning system in creating such inequalities, its justifications for doing so, and various attempts to remedy the situation.
