Higher education among minorities: The Arab case

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Coupled with ethnic moves from traditionalism toward modernity, the issue of minority groups in higher education has become central to societal transformation on a global level. This article aims to review the contributions to this special journal issue on higher education amongst Arabs in Israel, both evaluating how the authors shed light on one another, and how their work is positioned within the larger body of international research. Barriers to Arab access to and success in institutions of higher education in Israel are explored, and a special focus is put on the Bedouin-Arab community. The article presents recent attempts to improve both structural and cultural barriers to higher education in Israel, and proposes a far-reaching and internationally proven paradigm shift in higher education.
