An academic journal, naturally, cannot deal with current affairs. The
research process requires time and perspective and is always lagging
behind the actual events. This is all the more applicable when it comes
to a period of accelerated changes, as has happened in recent years in the
Western world. Even those who do not subscribe to Heraclitus’s notion
of panta rhei (everything flows) or his adage that “you cannot step twice
into the same river” cannot ignore the rapid, deep, and dramatic changes
that are taking place in many countries—especially in Europe, but in Asia
and the United States as well. Similar occurrences are also taking place in
Israel, the research arena in which ISR operates.
