One-year MAPP alumnus Samer Nammari published an article in The Georgetown Public Policy Review

June 13, 2024

Samer studied at the Department of Public Policy and graduated from the 1-yr MAPP program in June 2023. One of Samer’s papers that he wrote while at DPP was published by the Georgetown Public Policy Review in their 2024 Spring Edition: “In the Realm of Separateness: The Status Quo and Communal Control in Contemporary Israel.”

Abstract: “The role of religion in the Jewish state was, from the start, conceptualized to create a united Jewish identity that was necessary for the engineering of the nascent Israeli society. While the status quo system was originally conceived as a successor arrangement to the religious and civic accommodations maintained under the Ottoman Empire, and later under the British Mandate of Palestine, it nevertheless became an important element within the framework of communal control in the State of Israel.”
