European Coalition for Israel is seeking to provide relevant and factual educational resources for policy makers and the public at large. By working together with a network of acclaimed scholars and experts, ECI seeks to enrich the public debate with new perspectives.
ECI is constantly monitoring and analyzing European policies to be able to take action when needed.
Israel has been the subject of a concerted campaign to undermine the legitimacy of the State of Israel as a “Jewish” state. Increasingly, International law is often cited to support these claims.
This is the strategy of “lawfare” against Israel.
ECI believes that attempts to “delegitimize” Israel shall be addressed as it threatens the integrity of the international legal order.
HOLOCAUST REMEMBRANCE DAY
In 2005, European Coalition for Israel initiated and hosted the first Holocaust Remembrance Day event in the European Parliament. This event is today an official EU event under the patronage of the President of the European Parliament. Each year, we provide online educational resources to help faith communities and civil society organizations organize their own Holocaust Remembrance events.
SAN REMO RESOURCES
On April 27, 2010, European Coalition for Israel hosted the 90th anniversary of the signing of the San Remo Resolution, which paved the way for the creation of the modern State of Israel. Since that date we have continued to provide educational resources about the legal foundations of the state of Israel based on the San Remo Declaration of 1920 and the Mandate for Palestine of 1922.
