European Union Officials - May 2017

In coordination with AJC’s Transatlantic Institute, AJC Project Interchange will host a delegation of European Union Officials for an educational seminar in Israel. Participants on this delegation include assistants to Members of the European Parliament from a wide variety of European countries and staff serving in European foreign ministries.

Meetings with high-level government and civil leaders from Israeli society will allow the participants to immerse themselves in several important issues they often assess during their roles in the European Union and European Parliament such as Israeli foreign policy, Palestinian society and the peace process, and high-tech innovation. Participants will have the opportunity to travel to the Northern borders as well as the Southern region via helicopter to gain a first-hand understanding of Israel’s unique security situation and regional challenges. The seminar will also highlight Israel’s vibrant society and culture through a walking tour of the Old City of Jerusalem, a visit to the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial, and dinners with invited Israeli guests.
