Four Elections in Two Years? A Guide to Israel’s Never-Ending Political Crisis

March 16, 2021 | 12:00 pm - 1:15 pm


Israeli journalist Amir Tibon (Ha’aretz Newspaper) will discuss the stakes of the March 23 Israeli election, and the challenges the current political situation presents to the foundations of Israeli democracy. Will Netanyahu get a majority coalition and cancel his own corruption indictments? Will the Israeli opposition unite around one candidate? And what will all this mean for the Biden administration? Join us for a lecture and Q&A.
