Israel and its regional and global conflicts: Domestic developments, security issues and foreign affairs

German foreign policy bestows central meaning to its unique relationship to Israel. Nearly 70 years after state foundation, Israel is in a highly dynamic, and transient phase. It is characterized by changing domestic intergroup relations and power structures, all of which effect domestic and foreign policy. These changes will also introduce a new dynamic into German/Israeli relationships.

The project endeavours to allow for an in-depth and profound understanding of current and long-term trends of Israeli society and politics, the Middle East conflict, as well as Israel’s relationships to its neighbouring countries, to Germany and to the EU, as well as other relevant international players.

The project is conducted within the Africa and Middle East Research Division.

Head of Project:Dr. Peter Lintl
Research Associates:

Research Assistant:Stefan Wolfrum

Funding:

The project is funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.

The Abraham Accords: An invitation to rethink the Arab-Israeli conflict

The Abraham Accords between Israel and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) may have started as a PR stunt, but regional and global circumstances have turned them into a potential game changer. Europe should assist in leveraging them to reengage with the Palestinian issue, writes Gil Murciano.

Annexations in the West Bank: Europeans need to punch their weight

Last week, EU foreign ministers emphasised that the resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict remains one of the Union’s strategic interests and that they discourage possible steps towards annexations. In this vein, the EU and its Member States should send a clear signal, Muriel Asseburg and Peter Lintl argue.
