Abstract

This installment covers the Israeli "Basic Law: Israel as the Nation-State of the Jewish People" that was enacted in July 2018. In two essays, it explores  the implications of Israel's latest Basic Law on Palestinians in, and outside of, Israel. The authors demonstrate how this new, de facto constitutional law seeks to erase Palestinians from inside Israel, while encouraging Jewish settlement in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.
