Professor Kalir Presents on the Imminent Dangers for Israeli Democracy 

On March 8, Professor Doron Kalir presented before the Laura and Alvin Siegal Lifelong Learning Program at Case Western Reserve University. The title of the presentation was “Is Israel Losing its Democracy?” In it, Kalir reviewed Israel’s legal history, including its unique structure of Separation of Powers and lack of a binding Constitution. He then explained how the current Government, led by P.M. Netanyahu, aims to completely demolish the current structure — effectively bringing about a unitary, authoritarian regime that will eliminate, for all intent and purposes, Israel as a Democratic State. The presentation took ninety minutes and was very well received.
