On November 1, Israel held legislative elections for the fifth time in less than four years. With former Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu set to return to office and form what is potentially the most right-wing government in the country’s history, what are the implications for Israel’s ties with the U.S., Europe and the Arab world? Further, what does this new government mean in practice for Palestinians and Israeli-Arabs?
On December 5 at Baker Hall, Ambassador David M. Satterfield, director of the Baker Institute and the Edward P. Djerejian Center for the Middle East, Gilead Sher, fellow for the Middle East, and Khalil Shikaki, a professor of political science and director of the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research in Ramallah, discussed the composition of the new government and the election’s main takeaways.
This event was free and open to the public.
