Adv. Shlomit Ravitsky Tur-Paz: Knesset left the courts no choice but to intervene
6th episode of ToI’s new podcast miniseries ‘Israel’s Judiciary: Reform or Ruin?’ takes a nuanced journey into looming legislation that could alter country’s checks and balances
Is Israeli democracy in danger? A proposed High Court override clause has many concerned about a possible tyranny of the majority. Join us as a diverse set of legal experts discuss with ToI editors what’s currently at stake.
In this sixth episode of our limited series podcast, Adv. Shlomit Ravitsky Tur-Paz speaks about her work in the areas of religion and state at the Israel Democracy Institute.
She explains that the courts have continuously asked lawmakers to create legislation, but ended up reluctantly making rulings, for example in cases of Jewish status.
Ravitsky Tur-Paz spoke at a Times of Israel live-streamed event on December 15 at the IDI in Jerusalem on the topic of judicial reform.
In this episode, which is a session from that event, Times of Israel editor David Horovitz introduces Ravitsky Tur-Paz and asks some follow-up questions.
Future episodes will include remarks from other speakers about specific cases of using a tactic of strategic litigation to broaden human rights.
