Multi-party, multi-views: A Geneva Initiative seminar with Meretz, Likud, Shas, Hatnua, Yesh Atid, and Labor

Rarely do representatives of the Meretz, Likud, Shas, Hatnua, Yesh Atid, and Labor parties sit down together during election season to talk openly with one another. But on December 26th senior activists from the six parties participated in a roundtable discussion during a Geneva Initiative seminar to discuss the future of Israel.

It was a unique experience for many of the participants... one of whom wrote:

"One of the problems of our discourse within the left is that it is sometimes only an internal discourse and we convince the convinced. This seminar was without a doubt not like that. It was open, full of discussion, and encouraged debate and airing of different views as well as an exchange of ideas. The seminar opened my eyes to a wide range of views."

The seminar was organized with the support of the European Union’s Partnership for Peace.
