Israeli Democracy: What threatens it, how to save it

Hosted by J Street U

American-Israeli journalist Gershom Gorenberg will discuss the policies and events that undermine Israel's democracy from the inside, the little known history behind them, and what must be done to preserve and renew the Israeli republic - with a more just vision for its future.

 

Gorenberg is the author of The Unmaking of Israel, a provocative examination of Israeli history that describes the crisis of Israeli democracy and lays out a vision for the country's future. "Until I read The Unmaking of Israel," says novelist Michael Chabon, "I didn't think it could be possible to feel more despairing, and then more terribly hopeful, about Israel."

Gorenberg is a senior correspondent for The American Prospect, and has written for The Atlantic Monthly, The New York Times Magazine, The New York Review of Books, Foreign Policy and in Hebrew for Ha’aretz.
