Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses three points regarding the international status of Jerusalem. They are: (i) the question of whether after the 1948-49 hostilities Israel and Jordan acquired sovereignty over Western and Eastern Jerusalem respectively; (ii) the legal status of Jerusalem after Israel occupied the whole city following the 1967 Arab–Israeli war; and (iii) the question of whether the United Nations is still legally responsible for deciding upon the status of the city, or whether authority on the matter has devolved upon the states concerned.

Keywords:   Jerusalem, Israel, Jordan, sovereignty, Arab–Israeli war, United Nations
