Ron Hassner is a Professor of Political Science at University of California, Berkeley. He holds a Chancellor’s Chair in Political Science and is the Helen Diller Family Chair in Israel Studies at Berkeley. His research focuses on religion and conflict, especially conflicts over sacred places, religion in the military, as well as on territorial disputes and interrogational torture. He is a faculty director of the Berkeley Institute for Jewish Law and Israel Studies. Hassner is a recipient of Berkeley’s campus-wide “Distinguished Teaching Award”.
Hassner’s initial research focused on religion as a cause of war. In War on Sacred Grounds  he argued that conflicts over holy places are difficult to resolve because these sites pose an indivisibility problem: they cannot be shared or divided the way other pieces of land are often shared to resolve conflict. The Temple Mount in Jerusalem and the Great Mosque of Mecca function as key case studies as do contested shrines in India.
His work subsequently shifted to analyzing religion as a factor during war, including such wars in which religion is not a motivator. In Religion in the Military Worldwide he commissioned essays on the many ways in which religion shapes military service around the world, including countries like Canada, Turkey, Japan, and Iran. In Religion on the Battlefield Hassner looks at the effects of religion on tactics and strategy. The focus here is on wars in which religion did not necessarily play a motivating role, to show that even in crucial military settings (such as World War I and World War II) religion enabled and constrained military decision making.
