In May 2021 an outbreak of violence erupted between Jewish and Arab citizens in Israel, alongside rockets attack on Israel by Hamas and Israeli airstrikes targeting the Gaza Strip. A month later a new coalition was formed in Israel, which brought together parties across a wide-ranging ideological spectrum. This includes the conservative Islamic Ra’am party, marking the first time an independent Arab party has joined an Israeli coalition. Against this background, a panel of four young scholars will discuss potential ways forward in Israel's Arab-Jewish relations.
