Melbourne-born  Mark Regev (Freiberg) was educated at Mount Scopus College and the University of Melbourne.

Regev, a senior diplomat with the Israeli foreign service, has also served as the former prime minister’s senior adviser on foreign relations and international communications. He has held a number of diplomatic positions at the Israeli missions to Washington, Beijing and Hong Kong. Regev holds a bachelor’s degree in political science and modern history from the University of Melbourne, a master’s degree in political science from The Hebrew University and an additional master’s degree, in management, from Boston University.

Reichman University President Professor Rafi Melnick congratulated Regev, saying, “I am delighted with the appointment of Mark Regev to head the Abba Eban Institute for International Diplomacy. Regev brings extensive experience in the diplomatic world, and I am confident that under his leadership, the institute will continue to be one of the most important centers in Israel for teaching and applied research in diplomacy, a key component of national security. On this occasion, I would like to thank Ambassador Prof. Ron Prosor for his important work as head of the institute and as a faculty member at the university. He has contributed greatly to the education of the next generation of leaders.”

The Abba Eban Institute for International Diplomacy at the Lauder School of Government, Diplomacy & Strategy plays a vital role in academic and practical education in Reichman University’s government, diplomacy and strategy programs. The institute provides academic courses, student internship programs, content for public service officials, and collaborations with institutes and partners worldwide. Among its other achievements, the institute made a significant contribution to the diplomatic campaign against Hezbollah in Europe, and to its definition as a terrorist organization in key countries, including Germany.
