As the only bureau within the State Department possessing technological and analytical expertise for leading scientific assessments of conflict, particularly in the field of early warning, CSO is well positioned to make policy and programming contributions aimed at mitigating or managing the on-going crisis between the Israelis and Palestinians.. The requested analysis is part of CSO's continued mission of advancing U.S. national security by breaking cycles of violent conflict and mitigating crises. Based on the scope of work, it will take 4 to 6 week time for completing the analysis.

The team will provide an integrated tactical and strategic assessment of the West Bank using with political-econometric modeling of conflict dynamics using violence data and economic indicators. CSO proposes a grant for the amount of $9,500 to complete the assessment.
