Democracy in Israel is under attack. A wave of proposed legislation has been introduced in the Knesset, targeting minorities in the country and aiming to limit the freedom of both the judiciary and the media. More and more acts of discrimination against women are occurring in the public sphere, and curbs are being slapped on the freedom of political expression.

All these mark the slippery slope of the democracy in Israel. A special Haaretz project presents the latest developments in legislation and the public debate, with contributions by writers Amir Gutfreund and Judith Rotem, professor of political science Zeev Sternhell and legal commentator Moshe Negbi.
