Transatlantic Forum: The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy

calendarclock - (GMT)

RUSImotifIn March 2006 Mearsheimer and Walt stunned political analysts around the world with a piece in the London Review of Books titled 'The Israel Lobby'. This article broke the Washington taboo against speaking on the influence that lobbies, and in particular the Israel Lobby, has on US Foreign Policy. Originally started as a research project at Harvard, Mearsheimer and Walt’s work culminates in their book, The Israel Lobby and US Foreign Policy, published by Penguin.

Please join us for a discussion with Professors Walt and Mearsheimer to discuss the thesis of their book, their supporting research and the ripple effects of this interesting project.

John J. Mearsheimer is the Wendell Harrison Professor of Political Science at the University of Chicago.

Stephen M. Walt is the Robert and Renée Belfer Professor of International Affairs at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard.
