Conversations in Conflict Studies presents Khalil Shikaki
060 Eggers Hall
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.
