Prof. Dr. Mohammed Wattad

10.12.2019 um 19:00 Uhr

Der öffentliche Vortrag unseres Gastprofessors für jüdisch-arabische Koexistenz, Prof. Dr. Mohammed Wattad, findet am 10. Dezember unter dem Titel „Israel as a Jewish Nation State: An Arab Perspective“ in Raum A 017 im Hauptgebäude der LMU statt.

Prof. Mohammed Wattad will discuss the various identities of the Arab citizens in Israel against the background of Israel's definition as a Jewish and democratic state all the more so in light of the recent enactment of the Nation-State Law. Juggling between legal, historical and political science theories and methodologies, Prof. Wattad will examine the meaning of Israel's definition as a Jewish and democratic state as well as the legal status of the Arab minority - both in the individual and the collective levels - in Israel.
