On 3rd November 2022 Benjamin Netanyahu’s election win brought to end an unprecedented period of difficulties with forming lasting governing majorities in Israel, after the Jewish State conducted five parliamentary elections in four years’ time. Instability, however, persists in both the domestic and international arenas. The most right-wing government in the country’s history to date stirred up popular opposition with a reform bill that plans to weaken the Supreme Court. Meanwhile, tensions with Palestinians are escalating, Hamas is now posing a risk from both the Gaza Strip and southern Lebanon, and Iran’s unchecked nuclear enrichment presents an existential threat to Israel as grave as ever. This panel of experts will discuss the most important inflection points that the coming few months are likely to bring in Israel’s domestic and foreign policies.
