Silvan Hirsch-Hoefler and Oded Haklai discuss the Israeli settler movement in light of current legal and political developments in Israel and in comparison with other settler systems around the world.
Please join us for lunch and a discussion of the Israeli settler movement in light of current legal and political developments in Israel and in comparison with other settler systems around the world.
Dr. Sivan Hirsch-Hoefler, Associate Professor at the Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy, Reichman University (IDC Herzliya), will discuss her recent book (with Prof. Cas Mudde) The Israeli Settler Movement, in which she analyzes the settler movement and its past, present, and future impact in Israeli politics and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
Dr. Oded Haklai, Professor of Political Science and Director of the Laboratory for Ethnic Conflict Research at Queens University, will share his research on “settlers and territorial control,” placing case studies of contemporary population settlement in a comparative framework. What can the Israeli case teach us about the broader category of population settlement today? What can other cases from around the world teach us about the Israeli settler movement?
The talk will be moderated by Professor Lihi Ben Shitrit, Visiting Fellow with the Program on Law and Society in the Muslim World at Harvard Law School and Associate Professor of International Affairs at the University of Georgia.
Co-sponsored by the Human Rights Program at Harvard Law School and the Middle East Initiative at the Harvard Kennedy School.
