The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: 2001–2021 and What Comes Next
Date & TimeWednesday, 20, Oct 12:00 PM
The score of years between 2001 and 2021 saw important changes in the Israeli and Palestinian political landscapes. Longtime leaders left the scene, the relative weight of political parties and factions changed, and new ideas gained support among Israeli and Palestinian publics. Professor Tessler will review these developments to lay a foundation for thinking about the future of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Mark Tessler is Samuel J. Eldersveld Collegiate Professor of Political Science at the University of Michigan. He is one of the foremost academic experts on the Arab-Israeli conflict and one of a very few American scholars to have attended university and lived for extended periods in both the Arab world and Israel. Many of his scholarly publications examine the nature, determinants, and political implications of attitudes and values held by ordinary citizens in the Middle East. He is the author of thirteen books.
