Description

"The Academy's study offers detailed and concrete proposals for addressing the numerous problems that will arise in implementing the transition to any form of Palestinian self-rule. It makes a critical contribution to the peace process and provides a potential roadmap for where we go from here." - Lee H. Hamilton, U.S. House of Representatives, Committee on Foreign Affairs. "The report is extraordinarily ambitious, impressive, and timely...Those negotiators now re-entering the "autonomy labyrinth" could all profit immeasurably from this book, as would anyone else expecting Palestinian self-government to be rapidly or easily hammered out." - Samuel Lewis, president, United States Institute of Peace, and former U.S. ambassador to Israel. The onset of Israeli-Palestinian negotiations in 1991 introduced the possibility of mutually agreed substantive changes to decades of bitter conflict. This report, prepared by a team of Israeli, Palestinian, and American scholars, delineates the practical elements and potential problems that will confront Israelis and Palestinians as they proceed toward negotiating a settlement of the status of the West Bank, Gaza, and Jerusalem. The report identifies concrete measures for improving the civic, economic, and security relations between Israelis and Palestinians that could ultimately contribute to a lasting peace between the two people.
