Career Israeli diplomat to speak at UCD

By
March 23, 2011 |

Shahar Azani, a career Israeli diplomat with an insider’s view of Israeli foreign affairs, will speak at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, March 30, in Wellman Hall Room 6 at UC Davis. Admission is free.

StandWithUs, the international Israel education organization, is sponsoring the national tour of this charismatic and intelligent speaker, along with the campus club Chai. For more information, visit www.StandWithUs.com.

Azani will call upon his unique experience of serving Israel’s foreign ministry at the United Nations and in Africa, the U.S. and Israel in his talk, “Will There Ever Be Peace in the Middle East? Insights from the Inside.”

Azani served as consul for culture, media and public affairs at the Israeli Consulate in Los Angeles in 2008-10 and later as the Foreign Ministry’s deputy spokesperson in Jerusalem. He is now director of external affairs at the IDF Widows and Orphans Organization in Israel.

Azani was born in Israel to a family of Yemenite immigrants. After serving in the Israeli army, he worked as the assistant spokesperson at the Israeli Embassy in London for a year. Upon returning to Israel, he earned both law and MBA degrees at Bar-Ilan University, graduating magna cum laude.

Azani then fulfilled his childhood dream of representing Israel abroad by serving in Israel’s Foreign Ministry, first as a legal clerk at the ministry’s legal division (international treaties), then at the School of Diplomacy, serving as deputy ambassador to East Africa, based in Nairobi, Kenya, in 2005-08. In this capacity, he also represented Israel at the UN headquarters in Africa and with various UN agencies and non-governmental organizations, dealing with crisis centers in the area such as Somalia and Darfur.

He now lives in Israel with his wife Elinor and their three children.
