Toward a Thin Constitution Anchoring Israeli Governance

The Jewish People Policy Institute (JPPI) aims to prepare a detailed proposal for a Thin constitution. For this purpose, two working groups have been established: one group includes professionals whose role is to propose the constitutional arrangements; this is known as the “Research Group.” Alongside it is a second group – the “Thin Constitution Council” – which serves the Research Group in an advisory capacity; its composition reflects all sectors of Israeli society.
If we are successful, the State of Israel will enjoy a stable institutional system and regime.
