Edna Ullmann-Margalit

Hebrew University of Jerusalem

Edna Ullmann-Margalit, Professor of Philosophy at Hebrew University of Jerusalem, will examine the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as a real world test of her theories on how trust and cooperation can emerge from distrust. She is concerned with the question of whether parties mired in distrust of one another must resort to some external power to mediate their conflict, or if they can overcome distrust on their own.
