"The Challenge of Complexity: How to Convey Israel to the German Public"

In cooperation with the bpb, KAS Israel invites you to the “Länderbericht Israel” book presentation by Dr. Gisela Dachs and to a panel discussion on the topic of “The Challenge of Complexity: How to Convey Israel to the German Public".

Details

The report takes a new approach (in comparison to other reference works) by addressing various topics through detailed and sound articles, which offer multiple aspects and perspectives. The book aims at depicting the complex reality of Israel in its context, as Dr. Gisela Dachs mentions in her introduction. Her project has been perfectly implemented. The authors' effort of reflecting upon the concrete living conditions of Israeli society is particularly remarkable.
