On any given day, chances are that Professor David Mednicoff will be opining on radio and TV stations or in newspapers around the world about developments in Iraq, Israel and elsewhere in the Middle East. "American involvement there," says Mednicoff, assistant professor of legal studies and public policy in the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences and a specialist in international and Middle Eastern politics and law, "is so intense at the moment that my research and teaching on contemporary law and politics in this region are often of clear relevance to U.S. foreign policy."
