CMES in Almedalen: The End of Liberal Democracy in Israel?
Israel is facing its worst internal political crisis in decades after its newly installed far-right government seeks to take total political control of the judiciary. What long-term political consequences could this have in Israel?
Please note that this seminar will be held in Swedish.
Hundreds of thousands of Israelis are out protesting in the streets against what is described as a "legal revolution" and increasing authoritarian rule. This panel will discuss what possible consequences this will have politically in Israel and in the region, but above all for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, which is currently in a violent conflict escalation.
