Dr. Shay Attias is a worldwide expert for Diplomatic Studies & International Communications who coined the notion of “Peer-Peer-Diplomacy Network.” His pioneering research of “Global Citizens & Digital Diplomacy” describes the latest development in diplomatic practice, wherein civilians, by virtue of social media, are not only consumers of government information but also information producers, with the potential to bypass existing official government bodies. Dr. Attias’s Ph.D. Dissertation (Political Science – Bar-Ilan Univ.) was dedicated to exploring the “Evaluation of Diplomacy” from “Modern time to the Digital Age” implemented on “US Foreign Policymaking” during the ‘Global War on Terror.’ As a former Senior Public Diplomat who founded the Israeli Agency for Public Diplomacy at the Prime Minister’s Office, Dr. Attias carries vast practical experience in Diplomacy & Security. Today, he is a lecturer in the School of Communication at Bar-Ilan University, where he teaches Public Diplomacy and Global Diplomatic Crisis Management.
