The Israel Institute, through its Public Discourse Events Program, is dedicated to funding and promoting public forums for the study and discussion of contemporary Israel. In pursuit of this goal, we support a range of events -- including academic conferences and workshops, think tank panels, lecture series, and public lectures -- where audiences on campus and beyond can hear experts weigh in on cutting-edge topics and explore new frontiers of research and teaching on Israel.
