As part of his responsibilities as a scholar in residence Benny Morris, Professor in the Department of Middle East Studies at Ben-Gurion University, will be giving his second talk on the Arab-Zionist conflict.
In a panel discussion moderated by Steven Hoffmann, Morris and Robert Malley will “report on the political, social and economic factors affecting the risk of conflict and make policy recommendations to address these threats. The team covers events from Iran to Morocco, with a heavy focus on the Arab-Israeli conflict, the situation in Iraq, and Islamist movements throughout the region. Malley also covers developments in the United States that affect policy toward the Middle East. Indeed, from 1994-1996 [Malley] worked in the White House as Director for Democracy, Human Rights and Humanitarian Affairs with the National Security Council.”
