Israel’s Wars with Hamas @ Wells Hall B-243
Feb 24 @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Israel's Wars with Hamas @ Wells Hall B-243 | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

JEWISH STUDIES FACULTY/STUDENT RESEARCH SEMINAR: ISRAEL’S WARS WITH HAMAS: THE DILEMMAS OF ASYMMETRIC CONFLICTS

Yael Aronoff analyzes democracies fighting asymmetric wars, as they attempt to balance traditional military strategies of deterrence with pressures for restraint. Restraining factors include: mitigation of further resentment by affected populations; maintaining a political culture’s self-identity as a democracy upholding democratic norms and international laws; and the importance of winning media battles. Dr. Aronoff will examine how international lawyers, military commanders, and non-governmental organizations have come together to reach consensus on what the restraints binding states in these wars should be. Co-sponsored by the College of Arts and Letters, James Madison College, and the Asian Studies Center.
