Psychological, Emotional, Cultural and Communicational Challenges to Reach a Common Ground



Drawing from field research, Dr. Samuel (Muli) Peleg will discuss attempts to establish how constructive communication patterns between Arab and Jewish community leaders occurred in mixed towns in Israel.  He will introduce a variety of approaches and techniques used to contextualize and reframe an intractable 

conflict in order to discover creative paths of managing it.

Dr. Samuel (Muli) Peleg is a professor and researcher who specializes in conflict analysis and conflict resolution, negotiation, decision making, leadership and intercultural/inter-organizational communication. He is currently the Rutgers University Political Science Department’s Director of Development for the MA Program in UN and Global Policy Studies.  He was a visiting faculty member at the negotiation and conflict resolution program (NECR) at Columbia University (2009-2013). He is the author of several books and articles about his areas of expertise. Among his publications are Spreading the Wrath of God: From Gush Emunim to Rabin Square (1997, Hebrew), Zealotry and Vengeance- Quest of Religious Identity Group (2002, Lexington Books); If Words Could Kill: the Failure of Public Discourse in Israel (2003, Hebrew University Press), and Fighting Terrorism in the Liberal State (2006, IOS Press). His new book Identity and the Coordinated Management of Meaning will be published in early 2017.
