Compensation to Palestinian Refugees and the Search for Palestinian-Israeli Peace (Paperback)

Compensation to Palestinian Refugees and the Search for Palestinian-Israeli Peace By Rex Brynen (Editor), Roula El-Rifai (Editor) Cover Image
By Rex Brynen (Editor), Roula El-Rifai (Editor)


One of the core aspects of the Palestinian refugee question is that of compensation or reparations for Palestinian refugees forcibly displaced by the establishment of Israel.

Despite the importance of the issue, many of the complex technical issues compensation would entail have not received adequate attention. In this volume, a rich variety of contributors – including Palestinian, Israeli, and international scholars, analysts, and former officials – examine the topic from an array of legal, economic, and political perspectives.

In doing so, they cast new and important light on the way the issue has been approached in past negotiations, the structure of possible compensation regimes and potential challenges and obstacles to implementation.
