Gender and Planning in Jerusalem

Gender and Planning in Jerusalem, Jerusalem, October 24, 2010

The Partnership held a workshop on "Gender and Planning in Jerusalem". Faculty members from eight different courses and the NGO representatives operating in Jerusalem with whom they work, met to discuss common dilemmas and possible cooperation.


The main issues raised in the workshop were methods for community involvement in planning, types and definitions of community, or what actually constitutes a community, the colonial relationship between academia and the community in East Jerusalem, and barriers imposed by language and gender.
