Everything we thought we knew about Israel is changing – politics, relationships with Arab neighbours, the secular-religious divide, demographics, the economy and perhaps most fundamental of all, the values. Dr Raphael Marcus leads a panel of experts on the question: where will Israel be in 20 years’ time?

In Association with the Anglo Israel Association and the Rabin Chair Forum, George Washington University
