Summary/Abstract: The local-government dimension of relations between Poland and Israel, mainly twin cities, remains limited by the small number of active partnerships. The existing cooperation initiatives, often very intensive, remain focused on historical and cultural issues. However, there is also visible potential for widening the scope to include startups and sustainable development programmes. The actions of local governments, appropriately supported by the central authorities, can strengthen the interpersonal dimension of relations. This is particularly important in the context of the Polish-Israeli dialogue on difficult matters.
