Panel one of three from “Human Geography of the New State: Population and Planning in Israel, 1947-1952,” a conference by New York University’s Taub Center for Israel Studies on the decades preceding the nation and its early years of existence. In this panel on "Immigration and Planning," Gur Alroey (University of Haifa) speaks about the origins of Zionist immigration policy; Gil Rubin (Harvard University) explores the 1930s and 1940s and the 1939 white paper, and Avi Picard (Bar-Ilan University) discusses the years following the creation of the state -- how did the government address potential for mass Jewish immigration?
