German foreign policy bestows central meaning to its unique relationship to Israel. Nearly 70 years after state foundation, Israel is in a highly dynamic, and transient phase. It is characterized by changing domestic intergroup relations and power structures, all of which effect domestic and foreign policy. These changes will also introduce a new dynamic into German/Israeli relationships.
The project endeavours to allow for an in-depth and profound understanding of current and long-term trends of Israeli society and politics, the Middle East conflict, as well as Israel’s relationships to its neighbouring countries, to Germany and to the EU, as well as other relevant international players.
The project is conducted within the Africa and Middle East Research Division.
Funding: The project is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.
