Positive and negative components of Israel’s image in the modern international arena


  • Olha Yavorska Vasyl` Stus Donetsk National University


The image of Israel as a state is a complex phenomenon. It is made up of tradition and innovation, reflects the latest trends and pressing issues of the day, and is clearly linked to both foreign and domestic policy in many areas. The image affects all the spheres of public, socio-economic and political life of the country. In this regard, it can be argued that Israel‟s state image is a tool that helps to support the processes of establishing the state's relations with other players in international relations, while also influencing its internal development and determining the vectors of this development.
