ISRAEL'S WARS WITH HAMAS: THE DILEMMAS OF ASYMMETRIC CONFLICTS  (Academic)

Yael Aronoff, associate professor, analyzes democracies fighting asymmetric wars, as they attempt to balance traditional military strategies of deterrence with pressures for restraint. Restraining factors include: mitigation of further resentment by affected populations; maintaining a political culture's self-identity as a democracy upholding democratic norms and international laws; and the importance of winning media battles. Dr. Aronoff will examine how international lawyers, military commanders and non-governmental organizations have come together to reach consensus on what the restraints binding states in these wars should be.
