The German-Israeli dialogue program is set up to contribute to a strong German-Israeli relationship that is based on a realistic perception and mutual understanding of the past as well as the present. It works towards the benefit of shared democratic values in both countries, bringing together opinion leaders from Israel and Germany from the fields of politics, academia, the media, civil society and art.
The activities (conferences, workshops, roundtable discussions, festivals, publications) are conducted to provide a deeper understanding of the challenges both countries face as modern societies and nation states, such as dealing with citizenship and multicultural societies. Moreover, it aims to identify elements from experiences of reconciliation and conflict resolution from Europe for possible joint contributions to local conflict resolution.
