Since the latest round of Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations collapsed in early 2014, the PLO has proposed various measures to break the current impasse and internationalize efforts towards a solution. These measures vary from a UN Security Council resolution that would set parameters and a deadline for final-status negotiations, to terminating the Oslo Accords and dissolving the Palestinian Authority. These developments raise important questions of international law and carry serious policy implications.
Post-Oslo Palestine in International Law is a legal and policy strategy for Palestinian policymakers. It takes stock of Palestine’s current legal and diplomatic initiatives and incorporates them into a coherent framework for breaking out of the bankrupt paradigm of open-ended, bilateral negotiations. The project leverages our experience working on the negotiations and our relationships with Palestinian policymakers to promote strategic, proactive decision-making in the pursuit of self-determination.
