There are not many individuals in the world, who do not know Israel. Who did not hear something, good or bad, about it? Many have strong opinions about what is happening in this small country. The country that was once a model society of equality and liberal democracy is now a partner to more conservative and illiberal regimes around the world. So, who are you Israel of 2020?

Avrum Burg, former speaker of the Knesset and chairman of the Jewish Agency for Israel, is currently NYU-AD professorial lecturer in Abu Dhabi. From September 2019 to May 2020 he is a recurrent Visiting Fellow at the IWM.
