About

Ph.D. Candidate at the Political Science department at the University of Toronto. I completed my B.A. in Communications and Political Science and my M.A. in Political Science at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem, Israel. I am currently engaged in writing my dissertation on the ideational factor in institutional change. This project, under the supervision of Paul Kingston, focuses on the Israeli case and attempts to explain the protracted process of consolidation of Israeli democracy through an examination of ideational schemas in elite discourse. I have also written on electoral behaviour (M.A. thesis: On Switching: A Two Step Model of Individual Level Electoral Volatility [Hebrew]), on the bi-national solution in Israel/Palestine, and on national identity in Israel. I am also interested in electoral systems and electoral reforms.
