Matar will discus what the case of Israel/Palestine, after 50 years of military occupation and with the rise of a new quasi-authoritarian regime reveals about populism and the media. He will discuss the media’s potential role in unifying a progressive camp to fight back; similarities and links between Netanyahu and Trump; and what we can learn from other societies that have gone and are going through similar types of dangerous processes.
