Yael Zeira, Minerva Postdoctoral Fellow at the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies at Stanford University, will deliver a public talk on 'Assessing the Impact of International Recognition on Conflict Attitudes.' Dr. Zeira's talk will examine the effect of the recent United Nations General Assembly decision to recognize Palestine as a non-member observer state on Palestinian public opinion, including support for territorial compromise, support for the use of violence, inter-religious relations, and the role of religion in mediating the changes that took place. The report presents data from research undertaken by Dr. Zeira and Professor Nadav Shelef of UW-Madison's Department of Political Science.
