International Law and the ‘Permanent Status’ Issues

International Law and the ‘Permanent Status’ Issues

(p.267) 14 International Law and the ‘Permanent Status’ Issues
The Oslo Accords


Oxford University Press

The Oslo Accords lists seven ‘permanent status’ issues in the following order: (1) Jerusalem, (2) refugees, (3) settlements, (4) security arrangements, (5) borders, (6) relations and cooperation with other neighbours, and (7) other issues of common interest. This chapter considers these issues. International law offers general guidance on how the parties might resolve most of the final-status issues. The main part of the task ahead it political, not legal. The law will not dictate any particular outcome. But it can draw baselines for parties, set limits, and help advance negotiations by providing a common language for discussion.
