Towards a Belgian law banning products from the colonies?

A legislative proposal was filed to the Belgian Federal Parliament on 8 November 2023 to “prohibit the commercialisation of products and services issued from serious violations of the international humanitarian and human rights laws in occupied territories”.
In order to facilitate future debates on the legislative proposal, our analysis presents answers to the main questions raised in the debates.

#StopTradeWithSettlements

Over 20,000 Belgian signatures

One year of mobilisation in the framework of the European Citizens’ Initiative #StopTradeWithSettlements and the Made in illegality campaign. More than 20,000 Belgian signatures collected to ban trade relations with illegally colonised territories! On Monday 27 February, we handed over the petition to Minister Pierre-Yves Dermagne. As a reminder, during the presentation of his general policy note last November, the Belgian Minister of Economy announced that he had commissioned a study on the possibility of sanctioning companies that have economic, commercial or financial links with Israeli settlements. We now expect a bill to be tabled in Parliament.

Ines Abdel Razek, PIPD : Vers une interdiction des produits des colonies ?

Les produits provenant des colonies seront-ils bientôt interdits en Belgique, voire au sein de l’Union européenne ? Le Premier ministre belge, Alexander de Croo, a ouvert la porte à une telle avancée législative. Ines Abdel Razek, du Palestinian Institute for Public Democracy (PIPD-Rabet) et membre de la Coalition “Don’t buy into occupation” nous explique l’impact qu’aurait une telle décision. Elle déconstruit l’argument selon lequel cette loi porterait préjudice aux Palestiniens travaillant dans les colonies.
