The Research Center in the field of Israeli studies was created in May 2012 from the initiative of the founding members, professors and researchers from Romania and abroad, to lay the foundations of the first Romanian structure to promote a field of studies and research that appeared relatively recently in the international academic environment: Israeli studies. Given the complex and interdisciplinary nature of the new field, this center brings together experts from various scientific branches, from history and political science to the history of religions, security studies or Semitic linguistics. In October 2013 it was named the Research Center for Israeli studies “Goldstein Goren”.
