At a time of regional flux, it is pertinent to reflect on past British-Israeli relations, as a foundation for a discussion of future cooperation and challenges. Bringing together both Israeli and British speakers, the conference will reflect on the past 60 years of bilateral diplomatic and economic relations, scientific innovation and security cooperation in the face of global threats.
