As of October 9, written questions to the European commission about its funding procedures for Palestinians and Israeli NGOs remain unanswered.

The questions asked if there are specific criteria by which decisions on funding for these NGOs are made, and whether EU funding for NGOs since 1993 has had any visible impact on peace-making efforts between Israelis and Palestinians.
