About the talk:
Dr. Balaban will argue that the members of the Knesset established a mechanism for dealing with mutual complaints, a kind of early version of the Ethics Committee, already in 1949. This mechanism developed and was institutionalized during the first decade of the Knesset's activity and dealt with ethics in its meaning as appropriate behaviour between Knesset members or between Knesset members and the Speaker of the Knesset.

Dr. Balaban was the 2023 recipient of the AIS' Ben Halpern Award for Best Dissertation in Israel Studies.
