“The Quiet Deportation” – Palestinian Residency Rights in Jerusalem

By Megan Driscoll,  Jerusalemites Campaign.

Since 1967, more than 14,000 Jerusalemites have lost their residency IDs and, as such, their right to live in their city of birth.

Termed the quiet deportation, Israel’s intricate web of discriminatory policies in Jerusalem – including ID revocation, the ban on family unification, and barriers to child registration – are too often ignored in the discussion of Palestinian rights in Jerusalem.

This presentation will delve into these measures, examine their far-reaching consequences, and focus largely on what steps can be taken at the international level by policy-makers and solidarity activists alike to pressure Israel to end its efforts to ethnically cleanse the city.
