Challenges of Terrorism:  Lessons From Israel

May 2, 2019 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm

The CSULB Jewish Studies Program is very pleased to bring to Long Beach, Dr. Luba Levin-Banchik to speak about “Challenges of Terrorism:  Lessons From Israel.” She will speak on Thursday, May 2nd, at 7:30 pm, at the Alpert JCC (3801 E. Willow St.)

One of the major challenges of terrorism is its continuous transformation over time. Dr. Levin-Banchik will discuss how the most recent developments in Israel demonstrate how terrorism is now transforming into a low-tech and lone-wolf tactic, challenging conventional counterterrorism policies.  

Dr. Levin-Banchik is both a political scientist and historian, studying the evolution of conflict and peace in contemporary international relations of the Middle East. Her expertise is in the field of global and regional security, international crisis escalation and recurrence, domestic and transnational terrorism, cooperation and violence between rivalries, and nonstate actors. Her current project focuses on what enemies do when they are not fighting and how their respite hostility affects crisis escalation into severe violence and wars. Dr. Levin-Banchik research has been published in Terrorism and Political Violence, Studies in Conflict and Terrorism, and  Media, War & Conflict.

An Israel Institute Grant Recipient, Levin-Banchik earned a Ph.D. from Bar-Ilan University and is the Murray Galinson San Diego-Israel Initiative Visiting Professor Teaching at SDSU.

Like all Jewish Studies talks, this event is free and open to the public; there is no need to reserve a space.
