The  Mission  of  the  FSD

The Forum of Strategic Dialogue (FSD) is an informal platform that facilitates high-level strategic dialogue between Europe and Israel. The FSD provides a forum for Track "One and a Half" diplomacy, beyond the constraints of formal intergovernmental relations. The FSD fosters open communication that encourages participants—senior governmental officials and leading experts—to develop breakthrough ideas which enhance bilateral cooperation and relationship-building.

It is very important to sit together and discuss the key strategic issues openly, while understanding that there are diverse views in both Israel and Poland. By providing this forum, the FSD contributes significantly to Poland-Israel cooperation and friendship.

Increased understanding of Israel has been one of the biggest gains for me. My views of Israelis have evolved and matured. Going into each year with a fresh perspective on Israel's priorities informs much of my regional analysis and engagement.
