Israeli Election Study Series

The Israeli Election Study research project is a combined initiative of the Israeli Institute of Applied Social Research, Tel Aviv University, and the Hebrew University. The project, directed principally by Asher Arian of Haifa University, surveys the political behavior and attitudes of Israeli voters before and after elections to the Knesset, the Israeli parliament, and for the Israeli Prime Minister. The series provides data on Israeli voters' attitudes toward national issues, such as the issues of peace and security, defense, Arab-Israeli relations, Jerusalem, Lebanon, Palestinian terrorism and statehood, democracy in Israel, the economy, minorities, and religion, and the party and politicians best suited to address these issues effectively.
