The Reality of International Law

James Crawford

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the history of the creation of the states of Israel in 1948 and Palestine in 1998. Thus far, international law has distinguished between the right to self-determination and the actual achievement of statehood. It can be argued that the position is different when the requirement in favour of the statehood of a given territory is imposed by general international law, and in particular by a peremptory norm such as the right to self-determination.

Keywords:   Israel, Palestine, statehood, international law, self-determination
