Post-Colonial Settlement Strategy

First Edition

Ehud Eiran

Published by Edinburgh University Press

  • Explores the motivations behind contemporary (post-1960) settlement projects into occupied territories, against international trends and norms
  • Analyses three major post-colonial settlement projects (Israel, Morocco, Indonesia): one of the first books to place these projects in a comparative perspective
  • Also analyses three cases where states considered settlements but did not launch projects: India in Goa, Libya in Chad and Mauritania in Western Sahara
  • Argues that post-colonial settlement projects should be treated as a distinct category of cases, breaking with current work that views them as traditional colonial projects
