I am very excited to have my summer research supported by a non-profit association that fosters the study of the Middle East and Africa. I was awarded $2000 for my paper on “Revisiting Hawks and Doves: Patterns of Israeli Public Opinion on National Security” which I will present in November 2019 in Washington, D.C.
The research work includes the accumulation of vast amounts of data and evaluation of such. The grant enables me to make my data collection as comprehensive as possible, to focus on my archival research of valuable primary sources, and to develop the theoretical and empirical sections. Overall, the quality of the proposed project will be fundamentally improved and I can complete a journal submission draft in a timely manner.
