Recent years have witnessed new patterns of cooperation among India, Israel, and the U.S., three key democracies that face common threats from Islamist terrorism and share common values. While Israel and the U.S. have enjoyed a steadfast partnership stretching back many decades, over the past 15 years India and the U.S. have developed an increasingly robust strategic partnership. Similarly, after decades of relative disassociation, India and Israel have begun elevating bilateral ties in a more public manner, culminating in a landmark visit to Israel by Prime Minister Narendra Modi in 2017. As Heritage hosts a Track II trilateral dialogue with India’s Vivekenanda International Foundation and Israel’s Jerusalem Center for Public Affairs, please join a distinguished panel of experts from all three countries to discuss shared challenges and future opportunities for trilateral cooperation among India, Israel, and the United States.

Thursday, November 14, 2019, 10:00 AM to 11:30 AM – The Heritage Foundation’s Lehrman Auditorium

214 Massachusetts Avenue, NE | Washington, DC 20002 | (202) 546-4400
