Vice President of Social Risk Consulting, Control Risks
Prior to joining Control Risks, Michael was Chief Executive of Social Risks LLC and developed a proprietary social risk methodology which allowed him to provide holistic human rights and social risk assessments, mitigation advice, and monitoring.

Michael recently held senior positions at the Center for American Progress in Washington, D.C., and The Century Foundation in New York, where he concentrated on issues of security and peace, and consulted widely on Middle East policy, national security, and U.S. foreign policy. His work has been published in the International Herald Tribune, World Policy Journal, the Financial Times, Mother Jones, Jewish Daily Forward, the San Francisco Chronicle, and the Los Angeles Times.
Michael holds a master's degree in international relations from Columbia University and a bachelor's degree in critical theory and post-colonial studies from the New School for Social Research. Michael also holds degrees in conflict resolution from Cyprus College and Middle East history from the Hebrew University.
