Rethinking Security in the 21st Century
The IPPI’s International Security program aims to explore the security challenges of the 21st century while bringing together fresh perspectives from Israel and Europe and focusing on the less obvious aspects of the field of security, e.g. migration, humanitarian aid, environment, energy, technology, human rights, and gender.
The Israel Public Policy Institute offers young leaders from Germany an opportunity to participate in a Fellowship program in cooperation with the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) on the theme “Rethinking Security in the 21st Century – German-Israeli perspectives”.
The Fellows program will provide young public policy professionals with an opportunity to work alongside researchers at the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv and gather first-hand experience about the major security challenges facing the country.
As part of the program, Fellows will be required to write a policy paper based on a research proposal on a common security challenge both in Germany and in Israel. As part of their work, the members will analyze the issue area at hand while bringing together perspectives from Israel and Germany and reflecting on best practices in the field.
In the framework of the program, the Fellows will be able to draw on the pool of partners of the IPPI, HBS and of the INSS and familiarize themselves with relevant actors in the country.
The program "Rethinking Security in the 21st Century: German-Israeli Perspectives" takes place in cooperation with the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) and the Heinrich Böll Foundation (HBS)
