High-Level Dialogues aim at building trust through ongoing dialogues and open interaction. Believing understanding and trust are the cornerstones of success for the world’s most important bilateral relations, the Foundation focuses much of its programming on creating opportunities for a broad range of high-level delegations of academics, specialists, and community leaders from each country to meet and engage in deep and open conversations on key issues of mutual importance.
