The European Union (EU) is an economic and political partnership between 27 European countries. It plays an important role in international affairs through diplomacy, trade, development aid and working with global organisations. Abroad, the EU is represented through more than 140 diplomatic representations, known also as EU Delegations, which have a similar function to those of an embassy.
The EU Delegation to the West Bank and Gaza Strip ("the Delegation"): The basis of the EU's work is its long-standing commitment to the vision of an independent and sovereign state of Palestine living side by side with Israel in peace and security. The EU works closely with the Palestinian Authority (PA) to build viable institutions that are essential to run a democratic state. The bottom-up process of building the institutions of the future Palestinian state is complemented by political work. The EU – with the UN, the US and Russia – is a member of the so-called Quartet which mediates between the two parties in an effort to advance the two-state solution.
