Justine Zwerling is married and has two children. She has been working at the senior economic level in Europe, the Middle East, India, China, and Africa for about 20 years. Justine received her bachelor’s degree in English literature and history from Bath Spa University and her master’s degree in Middle Eastern history in the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
Zwerling joined the UAE-Israel Business Council in 2020 and has been a founding member of the council. In addition, she is a founding member of the Gulf-Israel Women’s Forum. Zwerling can be consequently regarded as an economic figurehead in the Israeli regime’s push to counter its growing international isolation by normalizing relations with despotic Arab regimes.
The UIBC is the central and largest economic organization formed in the field of economical connections between the UAE and Israel. The council began operations immediately after the “Abraham Accords” between the two countries in August 2020.
