9780815633389: Democracy and Conflict Resolution: The Dilemmas of Israel's Peacemaking (Syracuse Studies on Peace and Conflict Resolution)

Studies of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict typically focus on how international conditions drive the likelihood of conflict resolution. By contrast, Democracy and Conflict Resolution considers the understudied impact of domestic factors. Using the contested theory of democratic peace; as a foundational framework, the contributors explore the effects of a variety of internal influences on Israeli government practices related to Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking: electoral systems; political parties; identity; leadership; and social movements. Most strikingly, Democracy and Conflict Resolution explores the possibility that features of democracy inhibit resolution to the conflict, a possibility that resonates far outside the contested region. In reflecting on how domestic political configurations matter in a practical sense, this book offers policy-relevant and timely suggestions for advancing Israel s capacity to pursue effective peacemaking policies.

Miriam Fendius Elman is Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at the Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University.

She is coeditor, with Colin Elman, of "Bridges and Boundaries: Historians, Political Scientists, and the Study of International Relations" (MIT Press, 2001).

Review:

A major contribution to our understanding of domestic politics role in International Relations, particularly democratic peace theory. Taking Israel as an instance of what A. Lipjhart called a deviant case, contributors to this volume persuasively show that Israel's democratic institutions, identity politics, and leadership hinder peace. The book s main achievement, indeed its main appeal, therefore, consists in showing the conditions under which democracies fail to solve conflict peacefully, and more generally, in promoting a reinvigorated debate on democratic peace theory. --Emanuel Adler, Andrea and Charles Bronfman Chair of Israeli Studies and Professor of Political Science University of Toronto

Deals with a very charged issue using a balanced tone. . . . The book makes a valuable and important contribution to a topic usually studied with strong political zeal rather than cool academic analysis --Maoz Rosenthal, Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy and Strategy, Interdisciplinary Center, Herzliya
