ARAB POLITICS AFTER THE ISRAELI ELECTIONS
What Do the Results of the Knesset Elections Say about the Future of Arab Political Participation in Israel?
A Seminar with Simultaneous Translation into English
Monday, February 11, 2013, 9:30AM – 5:00PM, Israel Democracy Institute, Pinsker 4, Jerusalem – Though the overall political map was largely re-drawn following the recent elections for Israel's 19th Knesset, little change was apparent in the Arab Israeli sector. The final tally yielded results for the Arab parties nearly identical to those of previous elections: the same parties, the same number of seats, and many of the same politicians. Yet, this stasis belies what many analysts see as clear changes just below the surface.
Has the Arab public lost its faith in the Knesset and the parties meant to represent them? Have Israel's Arab citizens discovered an alternative to parliamentary activity? What effect will the recent election season and results have on Israel's Arab populace?
Join politicians, thought-leaders, and academics for a roundtable discussion: Arab Politics in Israel Following the 19th Knesset Elections. The event is cosponsored by the Israel Democracy Institute (IDI) and Konrad Adenauer Stiftung.
- Former MK Nadia Hilou, Labor Party, 17th Knesset
- Mohammad Darawshe, Co-Executive Director, Abraham Fund Initiatives
- Abdul al-Hakim Mufid, Political Commentator and Journalist
- Prof. Yedidia Stern, Vice President of Research, IDI

The event will be held in Hebrew, and simultaneous translation into English will be available for those in attendance. The event will also be streamed live on the IDI website. For more information, see the event page.
