2/18 TALK | Protests, Corruption, and Civil Rights During COVID — Israel
Thursday, February 18, 3:00 pm PST - 4:00 pm PST
While Covid-19 shutdowns and mask wearing became controversial and partisan issues in the US, in Israel they figure into a political controversy around the Prime Minister’s corruption indictments.
This past summer, massive protests swept the streets, highway bridges, and in front of the Prime Minister’s residence.
How did a public health emergency that threatens everyone become so politically contested?
Join Benaroya Fellow Smadar Ben-Natan as she analyzes Israeli protests and their relationship to Covid emergency management, civil rights, and political divides in Israeli society.
Open to undergrads and graduate students only.
