The research program on Europe focuses the political, foreign relations, economic, and strategic trends within the European Union and their impact on relations with Israel. The studies conducted as part of the program address international issues such as: the EU’s relations with the world powers, relations with the countries of the Middle East, relations with Israel, and more. The research also explores internal state issues, such as the tension between national identity and European identity, elections in Europe, immigration, the rise of extremist populist right wing movements, and the relations between Jewish communities throughout Europe and Israel.
The online newsletter “The Euro Brief” surveys central political, security, and economic events on the Continent. Published in English, the newsletter includes links to selected articles in the international press on internal European topics, such as: elections, political movements, economic developments, immigration, and antisemisitism in Europe, as well as foreign affairs issues, such as: Europe-US relations, Europe-Russia relations, Europe-China relations, Europe and the Middle East, and Europe-Israel relations.
