Abstract

This paper will look at leading Palestinian thinking and public perceptions on the following: First, the relationship between the three powers of state; different perceptions of the principle of the ‘separation of powers’ in Palestinian literature including the potential separation between the PLO and the PA. Second, the systems which create, amend and enforce laws such as the PLC and the judiciary. Third, the basic rules which govern public finances including a presentation of the main principles included in the BL and DPC and also the reform process. Fourth, the degree to which normative orientation (secular/religious) should direct state formation, institution building and the application of law.
