Missions to Israel
Each year, AILD conducts study missions to Israel.
The purpose of the missions is to allow ALP activists and trade union leaders to experience Israel and Palestine for themselves.
Mission participants establish links and bonds with key Labor Party officials, Labor Members of Knesset and trade union leaders.
Participants also meet with other key decision makers and thought leaders, and get to hear about how the conflict impacts on Jewish Israelis, Arab Israelis and Palestinians.
The missions also focus on a range of issues beyond the Israeli-Arab conflict. Participants are often surprised to learn that Australia and Israel have many social justice challenges in common.
