Ireland does not have any unilateral sanctions regimes, but implements EU sanctions, adopted as part of the Common Foreign and Security Policy, and UN sanctions. There are currently no EU or UN sanctions in place against Israel.

Decisions on the adoption, renewal or lifting of EU sanctions regimes are taken by the Council of the European Union on proposal from the EU High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and on the basis of unanimity. Equivalent decisions on UN sanctions are taken by the UN Security Council.
