Dr. Amatzia Baram
 

"The Future of Iraq: Bracing for the U.S. Drawdown
and the Impact on America"
University of Haifa's Expert on Iraq, Dr. Amatzia Baram,
to Speak in Miami and Palm Beach

 
 

Palm Beach, FL - Dr. Amatzia Baram, a professor of Middle Eastern history and Director of the Center for Iraq Studies at the University of Haifa, will speak at Temple Emanu-El, Miami Beach on Jan. 6 and Temple Emanu-El, Palm Beach on Jan. 7. Dr. Baram will discuss Iraq after the U.S. drawdown, sketch possible outcomes, and offer policy recommendations that could help make the best of a perilous situation. The Miami Beach presentation, co-sponsored by Temple Emanu-El, Temple Beth Shalom and the Cuban Hebrew Congregation of Miami will start at 7 p.m. The Palm Beach presentation will start at 7:30 p.m.
 
U.S. combat operations in Iraq may be drawing to a close, but a new and more pivotal phase in Iraq's future is just beginning. This new battle has major implications for the Middle East as a whole as well as for American interests there.
 
Can Iraqi politicians put aside their power struggles, resist foreign influences, and set the stage for the nation to emerge as the beacon of democracy envisioned by former President George W. Bush?
 
Amatzia Baram, a professor of Middle Eastern history and Director of the Center for Iraq Studies at the University of Haifa, will discuss Iraq after the U.S. drawdown, sketch possible outcomes, and offer policy recommendations that could help make the best of a perilous situation.
 
An internationally recognized authority, best known for testifying before the U.S. government about Saddam Hussein in September 2002, Professor Baram recently appeared in the acclaimed documentary "No End in Sight." He has written many books, most recently, a collection of essays titled, Iraq Between Occupations: Perspectives from 1920 to the Present.
 
Since the early 1980s, Dr. Baram has been advising Israeli and U.S. governments on Iraq. Between 1981 and 1993 he served as a senior reserves officer in the Israeli military intelligence, working on the Iraqi political system and military.  At the University of Haifa, Dr. Baram has served as Chair of the Department of Middle East History and as Director of the Jewish-Arab Center and the Institute of Middle Eastern Studies. He is the founder and current Director of the Center for Iraq Studies.
 
Dr. Baram has been interviewed by most of the world's leading TV and radio networks and has appeared, through interviews and op-eds, in leading newspapers, including: The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Herald Tribune and The London Times.  He has written three books and some 70 articles in professional magazines and journals.

About Dr. Amatzia Baram:
 
Dr. Baram is Professor Emeritus in the Department of Middle East History and Director of the Center for Iraq Studies at the University of Haifa (UH), Israel.  Dr. Baram was born in 1938 in Kfar Menachem, a kibbutz in southern Israel.  He served in the Israeli tank corps as an officer during both his regular and reserve military service.
 
In 1971, after a number of years teaching high school science in Kfar Menachem, a young Dr. Baram embarked on his true calling: his education as an historian of the modern Middle East. Dr. Baram completed his undergraduate and masters degrees, as well as his Ph.D. (1986), at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
 
Dr. Baram's teaching career at the University of Haifa began in 1981 while still a doctoral candidate.  Since 1986, he has also completed fellowships at a number of international research institutions. In 1989 and 1990, Dr. Baram was a Senior Associate Member at St. Antony's College, Oxford, UK.  In Italy, he served as a Senior Fellow at the Rockefeller Foundation's Center in Bellagio.  He has also spent significant time in America.  On three separate occasions, he served as a Senior Fellow at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.  He was twice a Fellow at the U.S. Institute of Peace, and once each at the Washington Institute and the Brookings Institute.  Dr. Baram also taught at Melbourne University in Australia.
 
At the University of Haifa, Dr. Baram has served as Chair of the Department of Middle East History and as Director of the Jewish-Arab Center and the Institute of Middle Eastern Studies. He is the founder and current Director of the Center for Iraq Studies. His main fields of research include:
 
  • Iraq 1920-2010: politics, religion, culture, and society (specifically, 1968-2010)
  • Tribe and state in the Middle East
  • The Arab Shi'ah
 
Since the early 1980s, Dr. Baram has been advising Israeli and U.S. governments on Iraq. Between 1981 and 1993 he served as a senior reserves officer in the Israeli military intelligence, working on the Iraqi political system and military.
 
Dr. Baram has been interviewed by most of the world's leading TV and radio networks including: CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, CNBC, MSNBC, U.S. Public TV and Radio, BBC, as well as international outlets in Canada, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, and Japan.
 
His has appeared, through interviews and op-eds, in leading newspapers, including: The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, The Herald Tribune, The London Times, The Financial Times, and The Guardian.  He has written three books and some 70 articles in professional magazines and journals. 
 
Presently Dr. Baram is editing an academic volume: "Iraq between Occupations: Perspectives, 1920 to the Present" to be published in 2010 by Palgrave-Macmillan.  His latest book: "Mosque - State Relations in Iraq, 1968-2009", is due in 2011. During the 2010-2011 academic year, Dr. Baram will be teaching for the second time as a Goldman Chair Professor at Georgetown University.
