Aruch and Hakim are reflecting on the foundations’ work in Israel by using the history of the Heinrich-Böll-Foundation as a case study. Their paper focuses especially on the close relationship between the foundation and its related political party by showing reciprocal influence and different perceptions and reflects the foundation’s and party’s relationship to the Israeli civil society by following the ongoing discussion from the early 1982 up to today.
