Political Enrichment Seminar: Israeli Local Leadership

In October, a select group of deputy mayors and local councilors from across the country participated in our two-day political enrichment seminar. From lectures on the core issues of the conflict, to matters of territory and borders, to the psychological aspects of conflict resolution and the impact of the recent election, participants were exposed to the most critical matters. Alongside this, the group met with Palestinian experts to hear about the situation in the Gaza strip and the perspective on the ground.

Local leadership affects the lives of millions of Israelis and many of them even reach the levels of national leadership. An in-depth look at issues related to peace and the conflict will help them formulate their own policy orientation and think of new ways to transmit knowledge-based messages to the public with which they are in constant contact.
