Center researchers were the first to generate a debate about the problematic aspects of Palestinian statehood in important international scholarly publications such as Survival and The Journal of Strategic Studies.

Center researchers published detailed studies warning of the danger of Arab chemical and biological weapons and missile stocks – long before anyone else took note of the threat from Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, and Iran.

Israel’s relations with key countries such as Turkey and India were incorporated into the Center’s core research agenda in the 1990s.

The dangers of radical Islam; the myths of Palestinian demography; the abuse of international institutions in the attempt to delegitimize Israel – all were put on the public agenda by Center researchers.

Today, the Center leads an attempt to introduce creative thinking about alternatives to the entrenched two-state paradigm in Israeli-Palestinian peace diplomacy as well as an initiative to nourish U.S.-Israeli relations.
