Five Elections in Three Years: Inside the battle over Israeli Democracy
Wednesday, October 26, 2022 | 1:00 -2:00 PM
Virtual Webinar, UNC
On November 1, 2022, Israelis will go to the polls for the fifth time since 2019. What are the reasons for this upcoming election? Who are the parties and personalities running for a seat in the Knesset? What makes this election different (if at all) from the previous four elections? And what could be its consequences for Israel, the Palestinians and neighboring countries? Join us for a virtual discussion with Israeli journalist Amir Tibon, the US Editor for Ha’aretz.
From 2017-2020, Amir was the Washington, D.C., correspondent for Ha’aretz, covering the Trump administration, Congress and the U.S. Jewish community. Amir’s writing on Israel and the Middle East has appeared in The Atlantic, Foreign Affairs, Politico Magazine, The New Yorker, Tablet Magazine, The New Republic, The Huffington Post, The American Interest and The Jerusalem Report. He has been interviewed on CNN, Al-Jazeera, CBS and MSNBC.
