In recent decades, nations, democratic and authoritarian regimes, as well as international organizations have faced many challenges, including the data revolution, human rights and their abuse, terrorism and war, pandemics, and climatic disasters. Some of those nations have used these challenges, accompanied by uncertainty and fear, to violate human rights and accelerate the erosion of democracy and the rise of populist parties as demonstrated by the response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Additionally, the migration from the global south to the north has compounded the importance of political identities amid challenges embedded in uncertainty. Hence, many governments are finding it demanding to cope with the dichotomy of preserving the existing power structures and the pressures for change. In light of these global trends, and in Israel in particular, the ISPSA annual conference will focus on exploring the ability of democratic governments to cope with such challenges considering the political, behavioral, constitutional and social realms.
