The goal of the conference was to examine factors that have been contributing to the deterioration of Jewish-Arab relations in recent years and to suggest practical steps that can be taken in order to put these relations on a positive track.  The discussion focused on mutual relations between three main sectors: the political system, the media and the academia.

These discussions will continue during the coming year.
