Our Mission

IPD Forum is a non-profit, non-governmental organization founded to advance international understanding of Israel and the Middle East. We were founded in 2014 by Professor Eytan Gilboa to address the gaps in Western knowledge of Israel and the Middle East.


IPD sends delegations of academics and notable scholars to cities abroad, when we partner with local organizations to provide dialogues and idea exchanges.


Our position is unique: we're academically oriented and non-partisan. This helps us stay true to our mission – getting accurate, unbiased information about Israel and the region to global audiences.
