Download the Australia – Israel Sixth Annual Be'er Sheva Dialogue - Proceedings & Outcomes
The sixth annual Be’er Sheva Dialogue was held virtually this year. Established in 2015, the annual strategic dialogue between Australia and Israel is facilitated by ASPI and the Begin-Sadat Center for Strategic Studies (BESA); and since 2020 the International Institute for Counter-Terrorism (ICT) at the Interdisciplinary Center (IDC) Herzliya. The dialogue brings together defence officials, senior parliamentarians and analysts from ASPI, BESA, ICT and elsewhere to discuss areas of strategic common interest and potential collaboration.
The dialogue is named in honour of the historic Anzac Light Horse victory at the Battle of Beersheba during World War I and alternates its location between Australia and Israel each year
