The NYU Wagner Middle East and United States Strategy Series- Israeli Counter Terrorism and its Implications for the United States
Daniel L. Byman, Director, Center for Peace and Security Studies, Georgetown University; and Senior Fellow, Saban Center for Middle East Policy, Brookings Institution. Dr. Byman has written widely on a range of topics related to terrorism, international security, and the Middle East. In this talk, Dr. Byman will examine Israel's counterterrorism efforts against Fatah, Hamas, Hezballah, and other groups to draw lessons about counterterrorism for Israel and other countries. For the last decade, the Middle East has occupied a place of primacy in debates over U.S. global aims and strategies. NYU Wagner will sponsor a year-long lecture series that will bring to campus original thinkers from academics, research centers and government. The Middle East and United States Strategy Series, moderated by NYU Wagner visiting professor Michael Doran, will address one of the most pressing issues on the U.S. strategic agenda.
