about

This book presents the first comprehensive legal analysis of the Oslo Accords. Professor Geoffrey Watson begins by rejecting suggestions that the Accords are non-binding political undertakings. He argues instead that they are binding international agreements between subjects of internationallaw. Professor Watson next analyses Israeli and Palestinian compliance with the Accords. Watson concludes that each side has a mixed record of compliance, but that neither side has committed so serious a breach as to warrant termination of the Accords. Finally, Professor Watson offers somesuggestions on how international law might help shape a final status agreement between the parties.

Editorial Reviews

`In total, Watson's analysis is extremely well-reasoned. His arguments proceed logically to the conclusion that the Oslo Accords are legally binding instruments of international law, and that they are an important milestone in progress towards Middle Eastern peace.'D. Vogel, Harvard International Law Journal
