The Abba Eban Institute serves as a leading source of knowledge and expertise in innovative thinking and practice in the fields of diplomacy and foreign relations in Israel and abroad. We aim to revolutionize the way foreign services around the world practice diplomacy now and in the future.
Our Mission Statement and State of Mind
The Abba Eban Institute for International Diplomacy at the Lauder School of Government,
Diplomacy, and Strategy at Reichman University, together with the Samson Chair for Israeli
Public Diplomacy, is a proactive research center working to study, theorize, and eventually help
craft an innovative, effective, and proactive diplomatic infrastructure for the State of Israel – in
order to strengthen its international relations and diplomatic influence through proactive actions.
We are more than a think tank, we are “do tank.” We provide professional expertise for decision makers, opinion leaders, and the general public, with the aim of
reinventing practices in the fields of both diplomacy and foreign relations in order to navigate today’s challenges
From Theory to Practice

Multidisciplinary Approach – We examine strategies and tools while focusing on practical goals and measurable results. Our programs offer short and long-term solutions to a broad range of challenges across different sectors in Israel and abroad
