Pol Violence in the Mid-East

This course focuses on the major systemic causes of political violence in the Middle East at both the state and non-state levels. At the state level, sources of violence include the consolidation of state power in fragmented societies, survival strategies by weak states, and competition for scarce regional resources. Violence by non-state actors is also examined, including violence associated with the Jihadist movement and with the conflict over Palestine.
