Professor Netta Barak-Corren — rumored to be closely advising President Herzog — wrote a very balanced, much-discussed analysis of Israel's crisis that is finally available in English.
Where can I find Netta Barak-Corren's paper in Hebrew?
The sound on that video is terrible.
Thank you for this! I've been looking for a thorough description of the system, reforms, and their impact and this seems perfect. It's interesting that her conclusions, stated up front (that there IS much to criticize about the judiciary BUT that these reforms are the wrong way to go) is what I intuited just from reading blog posts and op-ed pieces. As an American lawyer, just listening to how the system works made me think that the system was rightly subject to criticism. It's hard to believe you're living in a democracy if 15 lawyers who have no accountability to the voters (either up front via appointments or through a removal process) and can strike down laws even though there's literally no written Constitution that's been adopted by the people as a whole through some sort of special process.
I printed it out and will read it. But, I wonder if she can answer the question of what happens if the proposed law passes the Knesset and is invalidated by the Supreme Court?
Check and Check Mate? Logical contradiction?
One problem is background noise on you tube makes it hard to hear.
Is there a better recording ?
Thank you for making these papers and presentations available!
Thank you for posting this. This, together with all your previous podcasts and posts on the crisis, have been especially helpful. They have been the basis of discussion for many of my classes.
