Ziv's work focuses on Israeli elder statesman Shimon Peres' dramatic shift from hawkish strategist to dovish peacemaker. He will apply his research findings to other leaders, including Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, and discuss the relevance of his work to the upcoming Israeli elections and their implications for Israeli-Palestinian peacemaking.
