Israel’s Judicial Branch Reform

Israel, once touted as a thriving democracy in the Middle East, now finds itself in a very unstable political climate. After a 5th election in 4 years which restored the country’s longest running prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, Israelis are in the streets again protesting against a controversial bill introduced in the Israeli parliament. The bill, commonly known as the “reform”, promises to weaken the powers of the Israeli Supreme Court, which critics have said possesses broad and unspecified powers. In this episode, we discuss Israel’s political climate and the attempt at reforming its Supreme Court with Dr. Guy Laron, senior lecturer at the international relations department at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
