For the last Intersections episode of the year, we’re releasing a short conversation with Stav Shaffir, the youngest female member of the Knesset, and Brookings Senior Fellow Tamara Wittes, held between sessions at the 2017 Saban Forum. Shaffir discussed her transition from leading protest movements to joining the Labor Party and winning election to Israel’s parliament, fighting cynicism in politics, and changing political systems.
