Daniel Levy was the lead Israeli drafter of the Geneva Initiative and is now directing policy planning and international efforts at the Geneva Initiative-Israel in Tel Aviv. For over two years Levy led the working-level Israeli negotiating team in negotiating the terms of the Geneva Accord. He is actively involved in promoting and speaking writing about the plan.

Levy previously served as senior policy adviser to former Israeli Minister of Justice, Yossi Beilin, from March 2000 to March 2001. In this capacity, he was responsible for coordinating policy on various aspects of the ministerial portfolio, including issues related to peace negotiations, the Palestinian minority in Israel, civil and human rights, representing the minister on governmental committees.

During the Barak government, Levy worked in the prime minister's office as special adviser and head of the Jerusalem Affairs unit under Minister Haim Ramon.
Levy was a member of the Israeli delegation to the Taba negotiations with the Palestinians in January 2001, and of the negotiating team for the 'Oslo B' Agreement from May to September 1995, under Prime Minister Rabin.

In 2003 Levy worked as an analyst for the International Crisis Group Middle East Program, during which time he authored reports, including "A Time To Lead" the International Community and the Middle East," "Middle East Endgame" - How a Comprehensive Peace Settlement Would Look," "A Middle East Roadmap to Where?", and "Identity Crisis: Israel and its Arab Citizens." He also worked for three years as projects director for the Economic Cooperation Foundation, a Tel Aviv based policy 'think-tank and do-tank' whose mission is to promote regional peace and stability in the Middle East. He served his compulsory army service as an NCO in the Liaison Office with the United Nations Forces based in the region and in the office of the Deputy Coordinator of Government Activities in the territories.

Upon his arrival in Israel in 1991, Daniel Levy was elected chairperson of the World Union of Jewish Students, a position in which he served until the end of his term in January 1994.

Daniel Levy occasionally writes opinion pieces for Ha'aretz.
