Professor Frisch specializes in Middle Eastern and Palestinian politics and security studies. 

In his opening remarks professor Frisch discussed the reason why there is currently no progress in the peace process between Israel and Palestine. He talked about the domestic situation in Israel, competing political forces in Palestinian society and also about the role of external players. In the following debate professor Frisch discussed the potential consequences for Israel following the latest changes in Egypt and Syria.
