A Matter of Honor: a Review of Israeli Decision Making during the Second Lebanon War .


Thanks to the generosity of the Atkin Foundation, ICSR is offers young leaders from Israel and the Arab world the opportunity to come to London for a period of four months, producing a research paper as the result of their work. The purpose of the fellowship is to provide young leaders from Israel and the Arab world with an opportunity to develop their ideas on how to further peace and understanding in the Middle East through research, debate and constructive dialogue in a neutral political environment.

ICSR’s Winter 2010 Atkin Fellow Gil Murciano from Israel focused his paper on the role of national honour on Israel’s leadership and strategic decision making during the Second Lebanon War. As well as this the paper also considered Israel’s need to inflict  ‘counter-humiliation’ on Hezbollah during this period.
