Chapter Summary

This chapter deals with the EU policies towards Iran since the Islamic revolution until 2007, and focuses on the four main issues of EU-Iran relations: energy; trade and investment; human rights; and the proliferation of nuclear weapons. The EUs emphasis on political dialogue led to the European Council initiating the Critical Dialogue with Iran during the Edinburgh summit in 1992. The security of energy supply is of interest to all major players in the international political scene. Since the ILSA, the economic vacuum in Iran left by the US has been filled by European companies. Several EU countries declare that the nuclear issue is a risk to trading with Iran. The Iran-European Human Rights Dialogue was initiated in 2002 with no preconditions and stating that each party could choose to terminate the dialogue at any time.

Keywords: EU-Iran relations; Iran-European Human Rights Dialogue; Iran-European Union Energy Policy; nuclear weapons
