The S&D Group has played a leading role in the European Parliament in raising awareness of the situation of Palestinian Arab citizens of Israel, including the Bedouin community living in the Negev/Naqab.

The European Parliament, in its resolution of 5 July 2012, called for the protection of Bedouins and for their rights to be fully respected by the Israeli authorities, as well as for the withdrawal of the Prawer Plan by the Israeli government.

The aim of this seminar is to create a forum to discuss the current state-of-play, the Prawer-Begin Plan, the Alternative Plan initiated by the Bedouin community, and the EU's position in this regard.
