Abstract [en]

Jerusalem is at the center of the Israel/Palestine conflict. The escalating violence that the city has witnessed during 2015 is a reminder of the fragile situation. The state of Israel de facto annexed East Jerusalem in 1967 and the Palestinian population has since accused Israeli authorities for discriminatory actions and regulations regarding planning issues. Some Israeli NGO:s have during the last decade worked within the Israeli planning system and legal frameworks to create a better situation for the Palestinians regarding for instance building permits and infrastructure (Interview 2007; Ron & Blankshtain, 2011). This is an alternative approach in order to bring Palestinian planning issues onto the agenda. On the other hand it is problematic for Palestinians to participate in these projects as it risks legitimizing an occupation. The purpose of this article is to scrutinize the role of Israeli NGO:s working with planning rights in Jerusalem. The purpose is to understand these NGO:s as potential peace-builders but also to understand the challenges of working in the context of a protracted conflict. The article is based on interview studies performed in Jerusalem in 2007 and 2009 with public planners, private planner and NGO:s, as well as a follow-up survey sent to planners and NGO:s in 2015.
