Dr. Shikaki is an Associate Professor of Political Science and director of the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research (Ramallah). He is also a senior fellow at the Crown Center for Middle East Studies at Brandeis University. He wrote several books on Palestinian politics and his most recent publications is Palestinian and Israeli Public Opinion, with Yaacov Shamir, Indiana University Press, 2010. His presentation will examine current dynamics in Israeli-Palestinian relations, highlighting elements pushing for a successful peace process and the two-state solution and elements that pull away from that outcome, pushing instead toward conflict and return to violence. The presentation will define the meaning of success and the cost of failure for Palestinians and Israelis. The event is co-sponsored by Middle Eastern Studies Program of Syracuse University and the Moynihan Institute of the Maxwell School.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
