Israel Policy Conference[edit]

In June 2015, Jewish News organised its inaugural UK-Israel Shared Strategic Challenges Conference.[3] Through a series of panels and keynote addresses, the day-long event in Parliament explored issues relating to Israeli politics and the "two-state solution", responses to the rise of ISIL and countering radicalisation. Politicians, journalists, government officials and representatives of the major think tanks heard speakers included then Israeli deputy prime minister Silvan Shalom, Opposition Leader Isaac Herzog, Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid as well as UK Middle east minister Tobias Elwood[4] and Charles Farr, the Home Office's counter terrorism chief.[5]
