Join us for an engaging conversation with Ambassador Daniel Shapiro about foreign policy, American diplomacy in the Middle East and public service. Appointed by President Barack Obama in 2011, Daniel Shapiro served as the United States Ambassador to Israel until January 2017. As Ambassador, Shapiro won praise from leaders of both countries for his deft management of the U.S.-Israel relationship during Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, the Iran nuclear agreement, regional instability, and periods of significant bilateral tension and disagreement. Prior to serving as Ambassador, Shapiro's career spans over 20 years in senior foreign policy and national security positions in the United States government, including as the Senior Director for the Middle East and North Africa at the National Security Council.
