      Through their publications and international activities, law and society scholars have studied and debated a range of issues and related topics significant to Israel. These include: state law, judicial review, communities, religion, the constitutional meaning of "Jewish and Democratic," human rights, citizenship, equality, minorities, ethnicity. The law changes virtually nothing about life in Israel because Israel has, from the moment it was born, been a Jewish state. Indeed, when David Ben-Gurion, the country’s first prime minister.

    Defining Israel: The Jewish State, Democracy, and the Law is the first book in any language devoted to the controversial passage of Israel's nation-state law. Israel has no constitution, and though it calls itself the Jewish state there is no agreement among Israelis on how that fact should be reflected in the government's laws or by its courts.   The law states that “the right to exercise national self-determination in the State of Israel is unique to the Jewish people,” thereby denying to Palestinians any national rights or existence.
