The EU and the Middle East

ACT Alliance EU works towards achieving a just peace that ends the occupation of Palestine. This comprises ensuring accountability for serious violations of international law and guaranteeing viable statehood for all.

Our advocacy was a pioneer in addressing the failures of the EU and its member States to pursue their contractual relations with Israel and Palestine in accordance with international law. We also actively advocate for the end of the forcible transfer of Palestinians within the West Bank and work to ensure that humanitarian needs of Palestinians are met in a consistent, timely and principled manner.

Last, but not least, we call on the EU to support the establishment of accountability mechanisms that put an end to the prevailing climate of impunity.

Our work is informed and reinforced by the contributions of over 100 local partners and from cooperation with other advocacy organisations in Europe.
