About Naomi Chazan

Born in Jerusalem during the British mandate era, Professor Naomi Chazan is synonymous with an Israel that defends human rights, promotes equality and seeks a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

Naomi’s commitment to building an Israel as envisioned by the Declaration of Independence has been seen in her roles as a former Deputy Speaker for the Knesset for Meretz, a senior Israeli academic, activist for women’s rights, and former President of the New Israel Fund.

Naomi’s years of service and dedication to social justice, peace and tolerance, are the perfect inspiration for NIF Australia’s new Fellowship.
