A tangible output of the 2011 conference was the establishment of a study group of members of the Knesset and their assistants, in cooperation with academic and legal experts, to focus on the issue of collective rights with a view to promote concrete legislation aimed at securing those rights.


The first meeting of the club was held in the Knesset on December 2011. It was attended by Knesset members, their assistants, and CAF professional staff. The discussion centered on defining the work and work process of the club, how to attract more Knesset members, and the subjects to be dealt with. It was decided to hold monthly meetings.
