The Atlas of Palestinian Communities in Israel provides for the first time a comprehensive, easily accessible and detailed overview of all Arab-Palestinian communities in Israel.

On 468 pages, the bilingual atlas (English/Arabic) summarizes how Israel’s Arab-Palestinian population of around 1.32 million people (17% of the total population) is structured.

All maps were specifically designed for this project and supplemented with detailed information about community-sizes, their coordinates, population, density and origin of their inhabitants.

Structured according to the six geographical districts of Israel, the atlas contains an additional chapter on statistical data. On the basis of general maps and information graphics, it analyses population structures and compiles cross-comparisons.
