Director of the Posen Forum for Political Thought at the University of Haifa (Israel)
Pro to the question "Is a Two-State Solution (Israel and Palestine) an Acceptable Solution to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict?"
"[A]s a scholar of the Enlightenment and a political liberal I believe that rational dialog, twinned with human compassion, is bound to win. Because as a humanist Israeli Jew, and a Zionist believer in the two-state solution, I expect that hope will win."
"Why Bother Delving into History?," Times of Israel, Aug. 12, 2014
