Asaf Romirowsky is a Middle East researcher. He is an adjunct scholar at the Foundation for Defense for Democracies and the Middle East Forum.


Asaf Romirowsky served in the Israel Defense Forces as an international relations liaison officer in the West Bank and Jordan. He holds a BA from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem and master's degrees from Villanova University and West Chester University of Pennsylvania. He received his PhD from King's College London.[1] He is the acting executive director of Scholars for Peace in the Middle East.[2]

In late 2007, his invitation to take part in an academic panel at the University of Delaware was rescinded by student organizers after another member of the panel, political science professor Muqtedar Khan, objected to sharing a podium with a former Israeli soldier.[3][4][5][6]
