Mitvim – the Israeli Institute for Regional Foreign Policies is a foreign policy think tank, established in 2011, with the mission to improve Israel’s foreign policy, advance Israeli-Palestinian peace, and promote Israel’s regional belonging in the Middle East, Europe, and the Mediterranean. Mitvim develops and promotes a pro-peace, multi-regional, internationalist, modern, and inclusive approach to Israel’s foreign policy. It is ranked among the top think tanks in the Middle East and North Africa, and as one of the world’s leading regional studies centers, according to the University of Pennsylvania 2017 Global Go To Think Tank Index.


Mitvim generates new, progressive foreign policy knowledge and puts it into use. Mitvim works at the political, diplomatic, and civil society levels to achieve its mission. Core staff, policy fellows, and researchers produce original analysis and concrete policy recommendations. Mitvim conducts outreach activities to advance these recommendations, shape the political discussion, and influence policy. These activities include briefings to Members of Knesset (MKs), government officials, and foreign diplomats; policy dialogues with regional and international think tanks; expert-workshops and public events; media interviews and commentaries; and public opinion polls.


In 2017, Mitvim advanced its foreign policy paradigm, established and developed regional policy dialogues, held an international conference on the Arab Peace Initiative, released public opinion polls, and held its first annual conference. Mitvim launched a task team to emphasize the linkage between regional cooperation and Israeli-Palestinian peace, led a regional working group on cooperation in the Eastern Mediterranean, and produced analysis and recommendations on Israel’s foreign policy, Israel-Europe relations, and US policies towards Israel and the Middle East. This report highlights Mitvim’s activities throughout the year.
