Centre for Israel Studies holds workshop on ‘Unfolding the Story of Israel’

The Centre for Israel Studies of the Jindal School of International Affairs (JSIA) organised an online workshop on ‘Unfolding the Story of Israel: Security, Conflict & Diplomacy’ in July 2021.  This workshop was attended by students, working professionals and bureaucrats from all over India.

The seminar deliberated on different aspects of Israel’s history since the country’s founding in 1948, its relations with India and the Israel-Arab conflict. After its creation, despite numerous obstacles, Israel emerged as a strong, stable and developed nation with deep-rooted democratic system. Its existential struggle since inception, however, did not prevent it from leading the way in innovation and technological advancement and in becoming a startup nation. The seminar discussed all these facets in Israel’s history.
