CitationDobrushkin, Eryk. 2019. A Game Theoretic Approach to the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. Bachelor's thesis, Harvard College.
AbstractToday, the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, now over a century old, remains as destructive and intractable as ever. To gain a deeper understanding of the dynamics which perpetuate the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, I apply the lens of three instructive game theory models: Hawk-Dove, Evidence Games, and Norm Enforcement. I document features of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict consistent with such game theory models and develop insights as to the underlying incentives and fundamental dynamics compelling such individual and societal activity. Ultimately, I propose policy measures, informed by the game theory analysis, to produce substantive progress towards reconciliation and peace.
