EU Diplomats and Members of the European Parliament - October 2017

In coordination with AJC’s Transatlantic Institute, AJC Project Interchange hosted a delegation of European Union diplomats and members of the European Parliament. Through site visits and meetings with Israeli and Palestinian officials and experts in foreign policy and security issues, participants gained first-hand views of important issues they often face in their roles in the European Parliament and European Union. Meetings and briefings provided a platform for knowledge-sharing and relationship building. Sessions throughout the week also focused on Israeli-Palestinian coexistence initiatives, Israel’s geopolitical strategy and challenges, high-tech innovation in Israel, diversity in Israeli society, and humanitarian aid programs. Additionally, participants traveled to the Palestinian Authority and met with Palestinian officials and experts.
