The American and Israeli Elections - How Have These Elections Affected Israel and Prospects for Peace?
Dr. Fred A. Lazin, The Lynn and Lloyd Hurst Family Professor Emeritus of Local Government, Ben Gurion University of the Negev and visiting scholar at the Taub Center for Israel Studies at NYU
Monday, March 11 ∙ 7:30 – 9:00 p.m.
This talk presents an in-depth analysis of the current political situation in Israel and the Middle East and focuses on how the 2012 U.S. presidential election and the 2013 Israeli prime minister election have affected Israel and the prospects for peace. Fred Lazin spoke last year on Israel’s Changing Collective Identity and was so well received that he has been invited back by popular demand before returning to Israel.
