Conversations with Israel Democracy Institute
Understanding the Proposed Reforms in the Israeli Government
We have been watching closely as the current government takes up significant proposed reforms, including major potential changes to the judicial system, that could have dramatic impacts on how Israel’s democracy functions, and on many of the issues that are particularly meaningful to North American Jews.
These issues are complex, value laden and emotional, as is evidenced by the reaction of the Israeli public. We invite you to join us for two webinars featuring scholars from the Israel Democracy Institute (IDI) to help make sense of and provide context for all that we are seeing and reading.
The Israel Democracy Institute (IDI) is an independent center of research and action dedicated to strengthening the foundations of Israeli democracy. IDI works to bolster the values and institutions of Israel as a Jewish and democratic state. A non-partisan think-and-do tank, the institute harnesses rigorous applied research to educate decision makers and help shape policy, legislation and public opinion.
