Israel: Things to Watch for in 2021
Featuring Michael Koplow
Tuesday, February 23 I 7 pm CT
With the dissolution of the Knesset, the appointment of a new envoy for the Middle East peace process, and a new U.S. administration, there is great potential for an imminent shakeup of Israel’s political landscape. During this virtual lecture, Michael Koplow will discuss issues in Israel to keep a close eye on in 2021, including Israel’s political alignment, Israel’s response to Palestinian concessions, and the fate of the Abraham accords.
Michael Koplow is the Policy Director of the Israel Policy Forum. Before joining the Israel Policy Forum, he was the founding Program Director of the Israel Institute. He holds a Ph.D. in Government from Georgetown University, where he specialized in political development and ideology, and the politics of Middle Eastern states.
He writes Israel Policy Forum’s weekly Koplow column and edits the Israel Policy Exchange, which is a leading source for commentary and analysis on Israel and American Jewry, and his work regularly appears in Foreign Affairs, Foreign Policy, the Atlantic, and the Forward, among other publications.
