"Israel is a fascinating laboratory for anyone who is interested in studying complex societies through the tools of arts, humanities and social sciences. Our Advisory Board decided to challenge Montreal's diverse student population to reflect on these issues of complexity on the occasion of the 70th birthday of the Sate of Israel. We look forward to reading through the contest entries and celebrate together with the winners at our international conference in early July!"
