About me

Yonatan Levi is a PhD candidate specialising in millennial politics. His doctoral project is a comparative analysis of the generational politics of millennials in the United States and Israel over the last decade. He is particularly interested in the ways in which his generation understands and approaches power, politics and organisation.

Prior to his doctoral studies, Yonatan worked as a journalist for Israel’s leading daily newspaper, an investigative researcher for a Jerusalem-based progressive think tank, and a political campaigner. In 2011 he was one of the leaders of the Israeli social justice protest movement – the largest civic mobilisation in the country’s history. In 2016 he worked in the UK Parliament.

Yonatan is a recipient of the British Foreign Office’s Chevening Scholarship for students with outstanding leadership qualities, as well as NYU’s Paths to Peace Scholarship. He is a research fellow at Molad – the Centre for the Renewal of Israeli Democracy, and at the Israeli Labour Movement’s Berl Katznelson Centre. His writing has appeared in various media outlets, including The Guardian, Ha’aretz and Contemporary Politics. 

Yonatan holds an MSc in Political Theory from LSE and a BA in History and Literature from Tel-Aviv University.
