Hizbollah, Syria & Iran: Partnership and Rivalry in a Dangerous Neighborhood
Date Saturday August 19

Location Details
Home of Truth Center
1300 Grand St

Event Type Speaker
Organizer/AuthorJulie Rufo
The Alameda Public Affairs Forum is pleased to present Professor and Author Fred H. Lawson, speaking on “Hizbollah, Syria and Iran: Partnership and Rivalry in a Dangerous Neighborhood”, at the Home of Truth Center, 1300 Grand Street, Alameda on Saturday, August 19th, from 7 to 9 p.m.

Professor Lawson will be discussing how Hizbullah, Syria and Iran are most often presumed to have shared objectives with regard to regional and global issues. But in fact the three parties have divergent interests and purposes, even on key strategic questions. It is vital to spell out the areas in which these three actors' positions converge and those where they do not, if one is to understand recent developments and make accurate recommendations concerning policy.

Fred Lawson is Rice Professor of Government at Mills College. He is author of Constructing International Relations in the Arab World (Stanford University Press, 2006), Why Syria Goes to War (Cornell University Press, 1996) and other studies of political economy and foreign policy in the Arab world. In 1992-93, he was Fulbright lecturer in international relations at the University of Aleppo; in 2001, he was Fulbright lecturer in political science at Aden University.

Following the presentation there will be time for discussion and questions from the audience. The program is free but donations at the door are accepted.
