Anyone wondering what former U.S. Ambassador to Israel Daniel Shapiro will be doing in the post-Obama era, found out on Sunday when the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) announced that he will be joining them.

Shapiro was appointed a Distinguished Visiting Fellow as of March 2017. In this capacity, he will participate in several of the Institute’s research programs, including those on Israel-U.S. Relations, Israeli-Palestinian Relations, the Arab World, and Israeli Society and Public Opinion, INSS said in a statement.

INSS Director Amos Yadlin said, “Ambassador Shapiro possesses keen insight, deep experience, and a broad network of relationships in Israel, the United States, and the Middle East. Following his highly successful tour as U.S. Ambassador to Israel, he will strongly enhance INSS’s research and contributions to the public discourse on key bilateral and regional policy issues.”
