The CNU Program in International Conflict Management will present a lecture by Dr. Ian S. Lustick, Professor and Bess W. Heyman Chair at the University of Pennsylvania, titled" What gives a people rights to a land?"  The lecture is free and will take place on Wednesday, October 20 at 5:30 p.m. in the David Student Union Washington Room.  No reservation is required.

Dr. Lustick is an expert in comparative and international politics with a focus on Middle Eastern politics and identity politics. He is a recipient of awards from the Carnegie Corporation, the National Science Foundation, and the National Endowment for the Humanities, among others. His  present research focuses the politics of Jewish and non-Jewish migration into and out of Palestine/the Land of Israel, on prospects for peace between Israelis and Palestinians, on applications of agent-based modeling in the social sciences, techniques of disciplined counterfactual analysis, and the problem of modeling political violence.  He has published multiple books and articles on these topics, including most recently Trapped in the War on Terror (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2006) and Exile and Return: Predicaments of Palestinians and Jews, with Ann M. Lesch (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2008).
