Post Doctoral Fellow, Interdisciplinary Center Herzliya

Ronit Berger graduated from Tel Aviv University with a degree in Law and a Bachelor of Arts in Arts History in 2008. She went on to work at the IDC as a researcher and teaching assistant, focusing on her main fields of interest: civil wars and terrorism, conflict resolution processes and leadership studies.

In her dissertation, Ronit developed a new dynamic levels-of-analysis framework to explain conflict transformation processes focusing on individual leaders, organizational dynamics, and structural opportunities and constraints. Conducting a study of the Republican Movement in Ireland, she argued that the success of conflict transformation processes is conditioned by a sequence of specific combinations of factors at the three levels.
