“Israel and the Syrian Conflict: New Challenges Emerge ” with
Professor Robert Moog, the International Studies Department at North Carolina State University, Raleigh
The Syrian civil war, now well into its seventh year, appears to be entering a new stage: the Assad regime and its allies, namely Iran and Hezbollah, have gained the upper hand, and the U.S. is perhaps losing interest as the threat from ISIS as a territorial power dissipates. These changes are forcing Israel’s policymakers to confront a new threat: an empowered Iran with greater influence operating from a Syrian base, and its ally Hezbollah perhaps preparing to turn its attention back to the south, towards Israel.
Dr. Moog, recipient of two Fulbright awards, is a professor of Political Science at NCSU. His research has focused on international justice systems and he has served as consultant on justice system reform projects in Afghanistan, India and Nepal. Dr. Moog has a law degree from Boston U. and a PhD in political science from the U of Chicago.
