Israel’s nation state law

Israel’s ‘nation state’ law is formally known as the “Basic Law: Israel and the Nation-State of Jewish People”. It is one of the 14 constitutional laws of Israel. It allows Israel to identify itself as a nation state of Jewish people and provides the Jewish people their right to self-determination. It was enacted in 2018, leading to the downgrading of Arabic from the status of an official language to one that has special status.
