About The Workshop:

At the Abba Eban Institute, we firmly believe that in order to shape diplomatic messages with the power to change the world, it’s important to collaborate with other professionals and provide them with the necessary information and tools.


The Diplomatic Toolbox training program was developed specifically for professionals working in the public, civil and business sectors and enables them to represent the organization they are part of on the one hand, while educating others regarding matters involving the State of Israel on the other.

The program features leading scholars and policy makers who contribute from their vast experience and expertise.


Program participants will examine the complex reality in the area and analyze key practical diplomatic dilemmas and conflicts. They will study the ‘image war’ over public opinion and learn new methods for crafting and distributing effective messages. The program combines theory and practice, offering both academic knowledge and practical experience.
