Population redistribution policy in Israel: the special case of Jerusalem.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Jerusalem was the only city in Israel where no consistent population growth policies were maintained within the general framework of the population redistribution plans and policies. Paradoxically, until 1967, while the Jewish population of the divided city practically declined in relative terms, population growth targets for the city were below the national average. By contrast, since 1967, when the reunited Jerusalem regained its central position and has experienced spontaneous growth, it was accorded the highest priority for development. Inconsistencies in the formulation of planning goals on the national level and specific changing priorities on the local level, can explain this special case of Jerusalem. -Author
