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.

The Gaza Strip is on the brink of collapse as a result of the third full-scale military operation in six years, coming on top of eight years of economic blockade.

The EU and the international community have failed to address the root causes of the Gaza’s humanitarian and protection crisis, most notably: Israel’s prolonged occupation, the closure, existing divisions among Palestinian political factions and attacks on civilians on both sides

ACT Alliance EU is calling on the EU to implement a strategy aimed at reconnecting Gaza to the West Bank to ensure long-term prospects for sustainable economic growth and development and to address impunity for violations of international law committed in and around Gaza in past military operations.
