Urban planning and the everyday experience of Palestinian women in Jaffa

Hanna Hamdam Saliba


Aquest article pretén examinar com les polítiques de planificació afecten la pràctica espacial
quotidiana de les dones palestines que viuen a Jaffa. Per fer-ho, s’han realitzat entrevistes
en profunditat a dones palestines residents a Jaffa i a continuació s’ha utilitzat el mètode
de «l’anàlisi temàtica» per analitzar les narratives. El principal resultat de l’estudi és que
la planificació de les institucions locals i nacionals, que ignoren, ometen i discriminen les
dones palestines, ha produït espais inadequats i insegurs. Aquests espais limiten i redueixen
les seves pràctiques espacials quotidianes i exclouen les dones a uns espais socials, culturals,
econòmics i geogràfics limitats. Al mateix temps, aquestes polítiques discriminatòries i
indiferents condueixen les dones palestines a crear espais palestins alternatius que, malgrat
ser limitats i petits, els permeten eixamplar la seva mobilitat espacial, experimentar confort
i redefinir les seves identitats.

Paraules clau

planificació; relacions de poder; dones palestines; Jaffa; exclusió; alienació
