Abstract

Scholars of the Israeli judiciary have studied strategic behaviour in the system. Yet, relatively little attention has been given to strategic behaviour at the level of the collegial game in the Israeli Supreme Court. This article examines in detail the institutional platform of this Court, and argues that it is conducive to strategic behaviour of individual justices in their interactions with their brethren. The effects of strategic thinking on the part of individual Israeli justices are not limited to the collegial game. Rather, such thinking has had wide reaching ramifications for policymaking in diverse domains such as national security, state and religion and the separation of powers.
