Israel: looking beyond the headlines
Cyrus Schayegh, Associate Professor of International HistoryLunch Briefing
Maison de la paix, Genève
This Lunch Briefing will focus on two (of many) issues that rarely make the headlines but are avidly discussed in today’s Israel: the Jewish state’s relationship with the Jewish diaspora, especially the United States, and the socio-demographic profile of the Israeli military.
Prior to joining the Institute, Cyrus Schayegh taught for nine years at Princeton University, first as Assistant Professor and then as Associate Professor. He was also Assistant Professor at the American University of Beirut. His main areas of expertise cover the modern Middle East, global history, decolonisation, the Cold War, development studies and historiography.
