About the Event
The occupied territories are full of checkpoints, walls and army bases. But this militarism also extends deep into Israel proper and permeates all parts of Jewish Israeli society. How does this situation shape society itself? New Profile is an organisation leading the demilitarisation movement and we’re excited to partner with them for our latest online event!
New Profile believes that the militarism embedded in all aspects of Israeli society exacerbates violence, racism and sexism whilst weakening civilian and democratic values. In this 90 minute event, we will hear about their work and take a virtual tour all over the country to explore how and where the military influence is most felt.
Through a journey into different examples of militarization of civil spaces we’ll address questions like; what are the militarist norms in Israeli society? How are militarization processes embedded in education, culture and everyday life? And how do young Israelis who wish to avoid military service handle this reality?
