In December 2015, Shaviv played a key role in lobbying the government of Slovakia to grant asylum to 149 Iraqi Christian refugees.

Controversies

In 2012, Shaviv served as campaign strategist for iVoteIsrael, an organization that encouraged American citizens living in Israel to register for and vote in the 2012 US presidential elections. The campaign was funded by a nonprofit called Americans for Jerusalem, a 501(c)(4) organization. Although the organization’s tax status required it to be nonpartisan, Shaviv admitted that its funders included the “Sheldon Adelsons of the world,” and reports linked it to Ronald Lauder as well. {{Cite weblast=June 10first=Mairav Zonszeinlast2=Editfirst2=2012 date=2012-06-10title=Campaign urges Americans in Israel to vote in U.S. electionurl=https://www.972mag.com/campaign-urges-americans-in-israel-to-vote-in-2012-us-election/access-date=2020-09-06website=+972 Magazinelanguage=en-US A subsequent audit by the Internal Revenue Service determined that iVoteIsrael did meet the non-partisan standards of a 501(c)(4) organization.{{Cite webtitle=Analysis: Why does iVote Israel still exist?url=https://www.jpost.com/israel-news/analysis-why-does-ivote-israel-still-exist-463609access-date=2020-09-06website=The Jerusalem Post JPost.com
In 2016, Shaviv was hired by the Montenegrin Democratic Front party to serve as a consultant for the 2016 Montenegrin parliamentary elections. The election was shrouded by accusations by Montenegro’s chief special prosecutor of a coup attempt to assassinate the prime minister over his government’s attempt to join NATO. As part of the investigation into the plot, a group of 20 Serbian and Montenegrin citizens, including a former Serbian special police forces commander and pro-Russian rebel fighters in eastern Ukraine, were arrested on election day. While two Democratic Front leaders, Andrija Mandic and Milan Knezevic, were given sentences of up to five years, they denounced the verdicts and claimed along with all the opposition parties that the coup attempt was staged by the Montenegrin government as a publicity stunt to improve its electoral results.
In 2017, Shaviv was linked to a political survey conducted on behalf of the ruling party of Cambodia, CPP, ahead of the 2018 Cambodian general elections. The leaked findings from the survey were listed in emails that apparently showed correspondence between Cambodian Finance Minister Aun Porn Moniroth and Shaviv.

Awards

In 2011, Shaviv received Campaigns and Elections Magazine's Rising Star award for his work for a Slovak candidate whom he helped achieve victory after polling 40 points behind the incumbent less than two months prior to the election.
In 2012, he won Campaigns and Elections Magazine's Best International Campaign Award.
In 2016, he won the International Consultant of the Year Award from the American Association of Political Consultants (AAPC). AAPC President Mark Mellman also awarded him a Pollie Award for the "Bibi-sitter" ad in Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's 2015 campaign.
