Ronald Dworkin has recently argued that Israel is a “flawed democracy” because only secular states can be democracies. He further argued that Israel’s Jewish character designates an unequal status for the Palestinian citizens of Israel (18 percent of the citizenry).
In this debate Professors Kennedy and Feldman examine these claims and other recent developments in Israel’s treatment of the Palestinian citizens of Israel in the context of regional processes of democratization.
Professor Dworkin’s lecture is available on youtube (discussion of Israel starts on min 28).
