On July 2nd and 3rd 2014, the regional EU-funded programme Med Culture held consultation meetings in Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and Haifa with representatives of Israeli ministries and cultural practitioners. The meetings focused on policies relating to Israel's cultural diversity and the geographic distribution of the culture sector in the country. Participants contributed views and recommendations that should help in the design of an action plan which would be implemented in partnership with Med Culture during the programme’s life cycle (2014-2018).
Israel is a signatory of the 1995 Barcelona Declaration, a member of the Union for the Mediterranean and a participant in the European Neighbourhood Policy (ENP).
