Mr. Liel Maghen
Over the last years, Liel gained vast experience combining both top down and bottom up dimensions; this experience includes interning both in the Israeli Knesset and the Foreign Affairs committee of the American Congress together with managing several grassroots programs in the field of sustainability, advocacy and conflict resolution. Liel is a Glocal graduate, and holds a BA in Political Science and Middle Eastern studies from the Hebrew University in Jerusalem. Alongside his work in Glocal, Liel serves as the Israeli co-director of IPCRI. As Liel focuses mostly in community empowerment throughout his work, he is interested in direct people to people partnerships, participatory approaches, and in the power of direct democracy to shape governments and solving political conflicts.
