With Dr. Glenn E. Robinson
Resident Fellow at the
Middlebury Institute of
International Studies in Monterey, CA.

Dr. Robinson’s sponsor is Paul Petersen
of the WACSC Program Committee.

About the Program

        The current Israeli-Hamas war has tested the countries involved as never before, roiled Israel’s long-time alliance with the US, and enflamed passions across the region and beyond.

        In response, we’re privileged to present Glenn E. Robinson, award winning teacher, scholar and writer, who, with Gaza and the Future of Israeli-Palestinian Relations, will pull back the curtain on this tragedy.

        With national, religious and ethnic passions in play, questions abound: how have domestic Israeli politics entangled its war strategy? What of the hostages? The Palestinians? The place of Hamas? The war’s long-term impacts on US foreign policy? US standing in the region and beyond?

        Given the timeliness of the issue, we expect a full house for this all-important program. Be sure the come with your questions.

Registration for this Event is Now Closed.
