Martin's Work Published by the Foreign Policy Association
April 05, 2010
Emmanuel Professor of Political Science Lenore Martin, as a member of the Boston Study Group on Middle East Peace, recently contributed to a collection of papers titled "Israel and Palestine - Two States for Two Peoples: If Not Now, When?" published to the web by the Foreign Policy Association in New York. The paper was also posted on the Economist Middle East web page and on the web site of the Weatherhead Center for International Affairs at Harvard.
Martin is the Wyant Professor at Emmanuel as well as the co-chair of the Middle East seminar, co-sponsored by Harvard University's Weatherhead Center for International Affairs and Harvard's Center for Middle Eastern Studies. Her publications analyze national security in the Gulf, the Palestinian-Israeli conflict, the larger Middle East and Turkey. She is currently researching, lecturing and traveling throughout the Middle East and Turkey as a part of a Fulbright Scholarship.
The Boston Study Group on Middle East Peace is comprised of professional and academic members with strong interest in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Some have been intensely engaged with this subject for decades, while others have closely followed the conflict within the context of their professional work in conflict resolution, international law and international relations, religion, and U.S. foreign policy.
The group's principal contribution was a joint statement focusing on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict addressing the need for a two-state solution. The statement stands as a collegial, collective enterprise that represents a consensus view of the group.
Prior to drafting the policy statement each member undertook to research and wrote a background paper on one of the topics important to the statement. Martin's background paper was entitled "Palestinian Refugees."
