European Court of Justice Ruling on Products from West Bank Settlements

A ruling by the European Court of Justice last week holds that goods produced in Jewish settlements in the occupied West Bank cannot benefit from trade agreements between Europe, Israel and the Palestinian authority that give preferential access to European markets. Products such as wine, cosmetics and computer equipment are produced at illegal settlements in the West Bank. The consequence of the ruling it to allow tariffs to be imposed, making the goods less competitive in European markets.
