    This paper examines the recent history of the EU and U.S. approaches to key issues in the Middle East, and contends that European passivity in the face of the USA's dominance may no longer be tenable. Section 1 considers U.S. and European reactions to the series of events precipitated by the 1990 Gulf War and the subsequent U.S.-sponsored Madrid conference between Israel and the Palestinians. European and U.S. involvement as the Peace Process evolved is the focus of section 2, which assesses the EU's efforts to increase its diplomatic influence relative to that of the USA. Section 3 examines the transatlantic relationship in a broader context. It assesses the potential for trade, investment and security to be stimuli for competition and collaboration between the EU and USA.
