Professor Dagher’s work focuses on the various conflicts in the Middle East.

“Hezbollah's actions to date and any further escalation do not have the support of the majority of Lebanese people, but this may not prevent them, or Israel, from retaliating or opening a new front and causing considerable bloodshed and devastation. I'm not sure that cooler heads will prevail in view of recent statements and Israel's aim to "change the Middle East".”
