- Mitvim: The Israeli Institute for Regional Foreign Policies
- The Mitvim Institute’s second annual conference took place in Tel Aviv on
December 30, 2018. The conference explored alternative directions for Israeli
foreign policy towards the April 2019 general elections. In recent years, Mitvim has
formulated a series of guiding principles for a new Israeli foreign policy paradigm –
a pro-peace, multi-regional, internationalist, modern and inclusive foreign policy.
The conference sought to translate these principles into concrete policy directions,
which will enable Israel to improve its foreign policy, increase its regional belonging
in the Middle East and Europe, and make progress towards peace with the
Palestinians. The conference featured Members of Knesset (MKs) Ofer Shelah and
Merav Michaeli, Dr. Nimrod Goren, Dr. Ronen Hoffman, Zehava Galon, Nadav Tamir,
Yohanan Plesner, Dr. Maya Sion-Tzidkiyahu, Zouheir Bahloul, Prof. Elie Podeh, and
Einat Levi. It was moderated by Nitzan Horowitz and Merav Kahana-Dagan of Mitvim.
The conference was held in cooperation with Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, and can be
watched (in Hebrew) on Mitvim’s YouTube channel.
