Mr. Levy has an extensive background in various Israeli efforts
toward peace. Following the recent war in Lebanon, he was the
lead Israeli drafter of the Geneva Initiative calling for an
immediate resumption of negotiations between Israel and the
Palestinians. He served on the negotiating team to the Oslo B
Agreement under Prime Minister Rabin and as a member of the
official Israeli delegation to the Taba negotiations. Later, he
worked as senior policy advisor to Minister of Justice Yossi
Beilin and during the Barak Government as special advisor and
head of the Jerusalem Affairs unit. Prior to joining the Century
Foundation he served as director of policy planning and
international efforts at the Geneva Campaign headquarters in Tel
Aviv.

Here's a little more on Levy from Brit Tzedek's website:
Daniel Levy was the lead Israeli drafter of the Geneva
Initiative and is now directing policy planning and
international efforts at the Geneva Campaign Headquarters in Tel
Aviv. For over two years Levy led the working-level Israeli
negotiating team in negotiating the terms of the 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.
