In 2020, Bahrain, the United Arab Emirates, Morocco, and Sudan normalized their relations with Israel, the first Arab countries to do so since Jordan in 1994. We are delighted to welcome Roi Dvir to present a virtual guest lecture on the implications of the Abraham Accords for regional peace and to highlight some of the negotiations that led to the signing of these Accords.

He has held this role for over three years, where he oversees the bilateral relations between Israel, the UAE, Bahrain, Iraq and the Kurdistan Regional Government. He has previously been posted abroad, holding positions in Denmark, Russia and the Philippines. Additionally, he has worked in the Europe Department at the Centre for Political Research. Roi is an experienced diplomat, having worked for Israel’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs for over 20 years. He is married with 2 children and lives in the city of Modi’in in Israel.
