Prof Piotr Balcerowicz lectures on Arab-Israel Conflict and the Arab Revolution
October 4, 2012
 

Ethnic and Religious conflict is not the issue of Palestine and Israel Conflict, says Prof Piotr Balcerowicz

UMT School of Social Sciences and Humanities invited Prof Piotr Balcerowicz from Department of Oriental Studies and International Relations, University of Warsaw, Poland, to deliver a lecture on “Palestine and Israel Conflict”.

Prof Piotr Balcerowicz discussed the causes of the Arab-Israeli conflict with a sound historical perspective serving as the background. He described the regional, sub-regional and global actors of the prolonged conflict, and examined their interests and motives from a new perspective of conflict theory. Even though the focal point of the lecture seemed to be, on the surface, Palestine and Lebanon, he closely examined all the neighbors of Israel and other parties involved.

In the introduction, he relevantly pondered whether so-called ethnic and religious conflicts exist, and -- in order to demonstrate that they in fact do not -- he offered an analysis of the actual background of such conflicts, the Arab-Israeli conflict serving as an illustration of his thesis. He further demonstrated the implications of this conflict which concern the developments in the whole Middle East and beyond, including the evolution of religiously inspired political ideologies and also the Arab Spring.
