What are the achievements, the limits and the failures of the EU's involvement in the Arab-Israeli conflict? This book sets out to answer this question by analysing the development of European policy towards the conflict over the last fifty years and focusing in particular on three aspects: the convergence among EU member states policies; the development of the EU's foreign policy instruments, and the complex dynamics of EU-US relations in the Middle East.

The book will be of interest to readers who wish to acquire a deep understanding of the EU's policy towards a conflict that have proved intractable for over 65 years and that destabilizes a region of crucial importance for the European Union. It will be essential reading for scholars and students of European Union studies, of Middle East studies and, more generally, of International Relations. It will also offer a readable and practical policy update to practitioners and the interested reader.
