Dr. Alan Dowty, Professor of Political Science Emeritus at the University of Notre Dame and formerly Kahanoff Chair Professor of Israel Studies at the University of Calgary, will speak on “The Fourth Stage of the Arab-Israel Conflict” on Wednesday, February 12 at 7 p.m. as part of the Jewish Federation of Fort Wayne’s Pathways to Peace program at The History Center, 302 E. Berry Street.
The conflict between Israelis and Palestinians has passed through three major stages since its origins in nineteenth-century Ottoman Turkey: from a collision between two communities in Palestine, to an interstate conflict between Israel and Arab states, to the re-emergence of the Palestinians as the major actor opposite Israel.
Since the turn of the 21st century, a fourth stage appears to be emerging, rooted in religious militancy, the rise of non-state actors, and changes in the nature of warfare. This development complicates chances of reaching a two-state settlement of the conflict.
Dowty will share his expertise on this “fourth stage.” The program is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will be served.
