Dan Rothem is a Senior Research Consultant for The S. Daniel Abraham Center for Middle East Peace. Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, his main work deals with the peace process and U.S.-Israeli relations.
Dan’s work on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict focuses on the core issues (borders, Jerusalem, refugees, and security) and their prospective solutions. He works closely with various organizations — including ones composed of former senior Israel intelligence and military officials — on all matters relevant to the conflict: political, territorial, and socio-psychological. Dan regularly briefs officials in the Israeli government and military establishment, as well as in the United States, Europe, and elsewhere. He is also involved in a range of track II efforts related to these issues. Among his many research areas, Dan has been instrumental in developing, on behalf of the Center, an extensive interactive map database that allows decision-makers precise and instant analysis of territorial dynamics and borders proposals.
Dan grew up in Tel Aviv, Israel, where he completed his three-year service with the Israel Defense Forces with the rank of First Sergeant in November 1997. Dan’s relationship with the Center began in 2002. He has a BA in Journalism from Gardner-Webb University in Boiling Springs, N.C., and an MA in Government from the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) in Herzliya, Israel.
