EU and Israel are negotiating a new cooperation agreement, but negotiations have not yielded any substantial result. In what direction are EU-Israeli trade relations moving, fundamentally and politically, and what are the prospects for increased trade integration? Lior Herman, a Research Associate at ECIPE and a visiting lecturer at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, will present his recent research on EU and Israeli trade policy.
The EU neighbourhood policy with Mediterranean (non-member) countries has moved in the direction of bilateralism. For long there has been much discussion about deeper trade integration with Israel. Europe and Israel are currently negotiating a new cooperation agreement, but here have been talks of an additional trade agreement that goes beyond standard trade agreements or the core of EU neighbourhood policy. Yet these bilateral ambitions have not yielded any substantial results.
What is the present state of EU-Israeli economic relations – and in what direction are trade and economic relations moving? You are cordially invited to a lunch seminar with ECIPE scholar Lior Herman. At this seminar, Herman will present his research on the EU-Israeli bilateral economic relations and trade policy agreements – especially in the context of regional integration and EU neighbourhood policy.
NB: ECIPE has moved to a new office: Rue Belliard 4-6 – 1040 Brussels – 7th Floor.
