Product Description

The Palestine problem became an international issue towards the end of the First World War with the disintegration of the Turkish Ottoman Empire. Palestine was among the several former Ottoman Arab territories which were placed under the administration of Great Britain under the Mandates System adopted by the League of Nations pursuant to the League`s Covenant (Article 22) . All but one of these Mandated Territories became fully independent States, as anticipated. The exception was Palestine where, instead of being limited to "the rendering of administrative assistance and advice" the Mandate had as a primary objective the implementation of the "Balfour Declaration" issued by the British Government in 1917, expressing support for "the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people". Since the 1990`s violence in the region spread again. The assassination of Prime-Minister Rabin and the tensions in the occupied territories did keep the Question of Palestine on the international agenda. In this collection of documents a complete overview of the United Nations efforts to establish a peaceful situation in the region is being published.

In the first 16 volumes annual developments from 1946-2000 are being provided. From 2000 onwards separate volumes containing documents and background-informationare being published frequently.
To complete the first 16 volumes a separate Index and Historical volume linking the documents in this first part of the collection will be published.
