In this BICOM Podcast, Richard Pater speaks to Dr Arik Rudnitzky, a researcher in the ‘Arab Society in Israel Programme’ at the Israel Democracy Institute. Following Amnesty International’s new report accusing Israel of maintaining an “apartheid regime” not only in the West Bank, but inside Israel too, Richard and Arik discuss the social, political and economic situation of the Arab citizenry in Israel. Arik explains some of the important social and economic programmes in the new budget for the Arab sector, the current situation over the military draft for young Arabs, government actions to tackle the level of crime in Arab towns, as well as the political dynamics between the United Arab List (in government) and the Joint Arab List (in opposition).
