Israel’s “Post-Covid” 2021 Elections: Continuity and Change
Apr 7 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
Israel’s “Post-Covid” 2021 Elections: Continuity and Change

Israel’s “Post-Covid” 2021 Elections: Continuity and Change
Wednesday, Apr 7 2021, 2:00-3:30 pm  EST| Register here

The speakers will analyze the 4th Israeli election in:- 2 years. They will analyze the latest results, compare them to the last 3 elections, and discuss coalition possibilities and their implications. As Israel muddles forward in an attempt to establish a new government – notwithstanding the continued division over the legitimacy of Benyamin Netanyahu’s candidacy for Prime Minister – “round four” was in fact surprisingly different than the earlier three elections rounds. How will varied possible coalitions shape Israeli domestic and foreign policies? What are the prospects of a fifth election in the coming year? Among the topics to be explored: the evolving influence of Israel’s Arab citizens; a crack in ultra-Orthodox allegiances; and Israeli society’s growing complacency towards racist political parties. Come join the analysis followed by discussion.
