Program Details

The Israel Public Policy Institute (IPPI) offers young professionals from Germany an opportunity to participate in a Fellowship program in cooperation with the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) and the Heinrich Böll Foundation on the theme “Rethinking Security in the 21st Century – German-Israeli perspectives”.

The program provides young public policy professionals with an opportunity to work alongside researchers at the Institute for National Security Studies (INSS) and the Heinrich Böll Foundation in Tel Aviv and learn about the security challenges the country is facing.

As part of the program, Fellows are 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 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 are 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.
