The Future of Israeli Liberalism

Our founding academic group, hosted by Professors Nissim Mizrachi and Menachem Mautner of Tel Aviv University, explores the problematic place of liberal values in Israel today. A group of 25 professors, post-doctoral students, and doctoral candidates consider why so many in Israel are alienated from a liberal, progressive agenda and how to rethink the fundamental ideas of Israeli liberalism in order to create a vision for society that works for all its component parts. In Fall 2015, the group’s work was featured at a major conference held at Tel Aviv University. Members of the group are currently preparing articles for a special issue of the well-regarded Alpayim academic journal on their work; publication is scheduled for Fall 2018.
