CMES Research Seminar: A New Israeli Political Landscape? Recent Trends and Future Implications
All warmly welcome!
Isabell Schierenbeck, School of Global Studies, University of Gothenburg
The Israelis have voted for the fourth time in two years. They might be heading towards a fifth election. The lecture seeks to give an analysis of the recent Israeli elections; voting patterns, cleavages, and ideology. It moves beyond the anti-Netanyahu and pro-Netanyahu rhetoric, and points to future implications and challenges. What is consistent and what is new, and to what extent can we talk about a new Israeli political landscape?
