Head, Political and Economic Section, Embassy of Poland in Israel
There are diplomatic activities that require openmindedness more than anything else. Yesterday, together with fellow diplomats from several EU countries, I took part in a special tour to the Naqab (Negev) during which we had a chance to visit a Bedouin unrecognized village and a recognized township where we discussed various ideas concerning Bedouin l women empowerment and engagement into local businesses, activism and politics. The Negev Coexistence Forum for Civil Equality and Adalah – The Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights in Israel, funded by the European Union, organized the tour.
