HOUSING COOPERATIVES IN THE PALESTINIAN TERRITORIES: DEVELOPMENT AND CURRENT PRACTICE.

Abstract
By : Shadi Sami Ghadban

 
This study aims to examine the housing cooperative practices employed in the Palestinian territories in the second half of the twentieth century and across diverse socio-political circumstances. This approach has been implemented to fulfil the housing needs of Palestinian society. Tracing this movement reveals an intensification of the housing cooperative approach between the years 1958 and 2008. However, in the years since, this practice has declined considerably. This study discusses and analyses the housing cooperative practices adopted by the Palestinian community after 1956. It explores the stages, principles and concerns that characterise this practice, whether it is an approach that continues to meet a share of the demand for housing people in Palestine and how this practice can continue and receive wider support and recognition. The results of this study could aid in providing a diagnostic database, which in turn might provide a needed boost to the housing cooperative movement in the Palestinian territories.
Keywords: Housing Cooperative, Stages and Principles, Social Mix, Community, Palestinian National Authority “PNA”.
