Lian Najami

My name is Lian Najami, I hold a B.A. in Political Science and International Relations from the University of Haifa and Jacobs University. In addition to working as a TA at the International Relations department, I am also involved in research with the department of Public Policy, Public Administration and International Relations. My inspiration to pursue a career in International Affairs was sparked through experiences such as my time spent with Keren Shenhar, head of the International Affairs desk at the "Leo Beack Educational Center", where I had the pleasure and honour of meeting diplomats delegations and international journalists and deliver speeches to them regarding my social projects and life in Israel as an Arab Israeli. Later on, I became an international public speaker, with tours in Germany, the UK and USA, in which I discuss the image of Israel in the International Media and raise awareness to minority issues in the Middle East.
