  • Yousef JABAREEN | Palestinian citizen of Israel and elected representative of the Palestinian minority in Israel since 2015

Dr. Yousef Jabareen is a Palestinian citizen of Israel.  He was first elected to the Israeli Knesset (parliament) in 2015.  Before being elected, Dr. Jabareen was a human rights lawyer in Israel and did a Ph.D in Law at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C.  As an elected representative of the Palestinian minority in Israel, including its Bedouin people, Dr. Jabareen is in Canada to get a better understanding of Canada’s history, policy and practice towards indigenous peoples and minority groups.
