About the Speakers

Dov Waxman is the Director of the UCLA Y&S Nazarian Center for Israel Studies. He is a professor of Political Science and The Rosalinde and Arthur Gilbert Foundation Chair of Israel Studies at UCLA. Waxman's research focuses on the conflict over Israel–Palestine, Israeli politics and foreign policy, US–Israel relations, American Jewry’s relationship with Israel, Jewish politics, and anti-Semitism. He is the author of dozens of scholarly articles and four books, most recently The Israeli-Palestinian Conflict: What Everyone Needs to Know (Oxford University Press, 2019).


Dr. Tamar Hofnung is a political sociologist specializing in the politics shaping gender and racial equality policies in Israel and the United States. She received her PhD in Political Science with a specialization in Human Rights from The Hebrew University of Jerusalem and conducted her postdoctoral studies as a Rothschild Fellow at UC Berkeley’s Department of Sociology. She is currently a teaching and research fellow at the Nazarian Center. Her research at the Center is focused on affirmative action and violence against women policies in Israel and the United States. Hofnung’s most recent research project examines the impact of unsystematic data gathering—and the lack of evaluation guidelines—on policymaking related to diversity and discrimination in Israel.
