Robert Demgenski is a Ph.D. Student in Political Science at Syracuse University. His research focuses on the conduct of war and the causes and outcomes of international and internal conflicts. A veteran of the Israel Defense Forces and former Argov Fellow in Leadership & Diplomacy, his interest in political science stems from experience working with orphans of the civil war in Congo-Brazzaville and a short stint in politics with the German Free Democratic Party (FDP). He studied international affairs at the University of St. Gallen, Switzerland, holds a B.A. in Government, Diplomacy & Strategy (magna cum laude) from IDC Herzliya, Israel, and an M.A. in Political Science from Syracuse University.
