Forum

Why a Strategic Dialogue?

The effectiveness of current contacts between Europe and Israel can be improved and there is a need to better understand each side's culture, values, experiences and perspectives. The FSD provides strategic vision without a political agenda, beyond the constraints of formal intergovernmental relations to produce effective change and trusted professional relationships that endure beyond the annual strategic dialogues. The FSD provides a private and secluded venue for high-level European and Israeli policymakers and experts for informal interpersonal exchange on issues of national security where close coordination is essential.
