The 17th Annual Herzliya Conference took stock of Israel’s unprecedented strategic, military, and economic power. Notwithstanding, a multitude of domestic and external challenges pose a threat to Israel’s national security and resilience, and could rapidly and dramatically undermine its power preponderance.

The discussions held at the Conference comprehensively explored and clarified the key challenges on the national and regional policy agendas. Conference deliberations highlighted national “lights and shadows” – the sources of power and strategic opportunity, alongside the risks and challenges facing the State of Israel as it heads towards its 70th Anniversary.
