Dr. Jamie Levin

Post Doctoral Fellow
Jamie Levin
Jamie Levin completed his PhD studies in the Department of Political Science at the University of Toronto, and is currently pursuing his postdoctoral research in International Relations at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.  His research looks at the role of third parties in resolving the problem of credible commitments in internal conflict. He uses the Israeli – Palestinian conflict and specifically the Oslo peace process as a case study to provide insights on conditions in which third parties may or may not be an effective bridge between the two sides. Jamie's research holds real world implications not only for the Israeli – Palestinian peace process, but also for third-party intervention more broadly
