Research question How have NGOs influenced EU foreign policy towards the Israeli settlements? (Could be more specified)
The resources are preferable to be the recent ones especially in the literature review chapter
The dissertation should be critical and come up with a new thing not found in the previous literature ( fill a gap) and this should be clearly pointed out in the paper
lit review: the EU role concerning Israel and Palestine in general and then specify the case of the settlements and the role of the NGOs
Introduction: role of the NGOs On influencing the EU )what role NSAs play in EU foreign policy-making(+ NGOs relying on technical or legal frames when addressing the EU+ short things about counteractive lobbying by pro Israeli NGOs + methodology (case study/ I have to justify why I chose such methodology and how will it benefit me in my research)
Possible chapter:(the outcome of the activism of NGOs) The eu guidelines on funding
Distinguishing between Israeli proper and settlements area
Possible chapter: Labeling products and rules of origin
Conclusion can suggest what NGOs can further do to increase their influence…
And I think Its better if I just talk about the EU in general not the individual countries (the national level)
And also not include Gaza in the dissertation..
The time period would be after the EU realized the need for the differentiation policy with its relation with Israel proper (I think that\’s post 1998!)
examples of the NGOs that could be tackled is MATTIN group, Peace Now (settlements and trade)
B’Tselem and Al-Haq (focusing on human rights in the occupied territories).
I\’m still reading stuff and thinking of how the structure can be further adjusted (as if you have better ideas for the \”possible chapters\” I would love to know about and then you can change them)
I did another paper online the other time and I got fully refunded because they didn\’t present the most important thing of the paper
Like here the purpose of the dissertation is to be critical and come up with something new.
Concerning the inclination of the paper, it should be pro-Palestinian in a way
All the resources should be there, and the referencing would be in this form:
Ex.(Lovatt, H. and Toaldo, M. (2015) EU Differentiation and Israeli Settlements . European Council on Foreign Relations.)
