Europalestine sees its purpose in pressuring the European Union and the French government in order to force Israel "to respect the resolutions of UN, Geneva Conventions, and the recent ruling by the International Court of Justice of the Hague" declaring the construction of the Israeli West Bank barrier as illegal. Europalestine asserts that any "aid or assistance in maintaining the situation created by such construction" of the barrier is illegal for all States recognizing the International Court of Justice, while parties to the Fourth Geneva Convention have "in addition the obligation to ensure compliance by Israel with international humanitarian law".
In 2002 Europalestine supported the decision voted by the Université Pierre et Marie Curie and the University of Lille to boycott the scientific cooperation agreement between the EU and Israel, on charges that Israel had not respected the article 2 of the agreement.
