INDS 195 The History and Politics of Israel: The Peace Process and Internal Cleavages

This course focuses on the evolving peace process in the Middle East, with particular attention to Israel and the West Bank/Gaza and some attention to the Golan Heights and the relations between Israel-Jordan. Since 1992, there has been an accelerated peace process. The course assesses the implications for Israels international relations and domestic situation against the background of Israels history. Course includes seminar meetings, visits to historical sites (e.g., Massada, Western Wall, Tel-Hai), museums (e.g., Yad VShem), and political locations (e.g., the Knesset), and sessions with political leaders, academic analysts, and public officials.
