POLI 3570 Seminar: The Arab-Israeli Conflict:Can It Ever Be Solved? (Spring: 3 )
The Arab-Israeli conflict has lasted nearly a century, defying most attempts at resolution. The historical evolution of the conflict and peace process will be surveyed, as a basis for understanding the central issues today, the course's primary focus. The course will focus on Israel-Palestine, but also Israel-Syria and Lebanon, and will present the issues in the national security and domestic contexts of the different players. As a contemporary policy oriented course, students will draft "policy papers" elucidating the issues and recommending solutions. The course is designed for those interested in the Middle East, national security, decision-making and future practitioners.
