JCIV 256 - Israel and World Politics
This course will focus on Israel’s foreign policy from 1948 until the present. We will discuss the main characteristics of its foreign policy, the tension between ideology and "realpolitik" and the decision making process.

Key documents of Israel's diplomatic history will be analyzed. The course will include guest speakers as well as visits to The Holocaust Museum and the Israeli Embassy. We will also view and discuss a documentary film. This course will be taught by Ambassador Zion Evrony, who most recently served as the Israeli Ambassador to the Holy See (2012-2016).
