About the Event

As Israel struggles to build a new government, what do the election results say about the direction of Israeli ideology at present? What kinds of policy change or continuity can be expected from a new government in any of the likely scenarios? The core themes of the Israeli Palestinian conflict, religion and state, and the independence of the judiciary hang in the balance – together these issues will determine the fate of democracy in Israel. Israeli political analyst and pollster Dahlia Scheindlin will discuss the state of Israel's politics and expectations for a new government. Moderated by Professor Dov Waxman, The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation Chair in Israel Studies at UCLA and director of the Y&S Nazarian Center for Israel Studies.

Sponsored by the UCLA Y&S Nazarian Center for Israel Studies. Co-sponsored by the UCLA Department of Political Science.
