This study focuses on different groups of Palestinian citizens of Israel, representing more than 20% of the total Israeli population. Working on the link between urban space and social diversity, the authors will capture complex dynamics of segregation and social inequalities ex-isting among different Arab communities. This research aims to promote a new approach that, overcoming the stereotyped vision of two social monolithic blocks at war with each other - Jews and Arabs- shows a complex social mosaic of multiple cultural identities, characterizing the contemporary Israeli society.
