Many have argued that the possible demise of the two-state solution signals the death of Zionism. Such arguments tie Zionism’s fortunes to the nation-state, which is presented as the sole or optimal vehicle for self-determination. From a historical perspective, however, Zionism’s relationship to the nation-state has been more varied and ambivalent than these arguments suggest.

Drawing lessons from Jewish political history, we will explore a spectrum of political regimes that might be better suited to the realization of political and economic equality in Israel/Palestine.
