Abstract

This paper addresses the question of what territory a future State of Palestine may lay claim to under contemporary international law. It also addresses the question of what is the legal basis for, and integrity of, Israel’s territorial claims. Further, should the Middle East Peace Process fail, the question arises whether Israel could lawfully retain the occupied territories under its control.
