Campaign Against Discrimination in Budget Allocations

According to the Central Bureau of Statistics, as of August 2020, 1.945 million Arabs live in Israel, constituting 21% of the country’s population. The Arab-Palestinian citizens of Israel have suffered since the establishment of the state from budgetary discrimination in many areas, which has led over the years to significant gaps between Jews and Arabs in the country.

This situation is not only inconsistent with the principles of a democratic state but also undermines the social and economic resilience of the State of Israel, and therefore requires a fundamental correction.

In order to raise awareness of this issue among the Israeli public, the Friedrich Ebert Foundation in collaboration with Givat Haviva has launched a campaign on social media to raise awareness among the Israeli public of inequality in the distribution of budgets between Jewish and Arab-Palestinian citizens in the country and the need to change this situation.
