A FACILITATOR CAN HIDE ANOTHER: The Informal Dimensions of the Israeli Permit System of Access and Movement in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (1990-2010)

Abstract : This paper focuses on the chains of relations and interactions that develop through the process of permit allocation to Palestinian workers employed inside Israel since the beginning of the 1990s. It has two main objectives. First, I intend to identify the multiple actors that, within and outside of the State of Israel, are directly taking part into the allocation of permits to Palestinian workers. This will allow me to better stress the heterogeneity of this control regime as well as its informal dimensions. Second, I wish to stress how the constitution of these formal and informal networks deeply affects the ways Palestinians relate to space and the location of borders in Israel-Palestine. I contend that the emergence of formal and informal networks around the allocation of movement permits fosters the duplicating of borders from the actual Israeli and Palestinians territories to reticular spaces.
