Uneasy Neighbours

The EU and Israel – a Paradoxical Relationship

The description of the relationship between Israel and the European Union as an ‘uneasy partnership’ will be appropriate for the foreseeable future. On the one hand, the causes of alienation are likely to intensify, at least as long as a two-state solution remains out of reach. On the other hand, there are an increasing number of valid reasons for expanding the existing cooperation. The two sides have much to offer each other in economic, scientific and technical as well as cultural cooperation.
