Abstract

The chapter addresses the territorial implications of the rights of Palestinian refugees in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict as measured under international law. The chapter focuses on the central issues, addressing the questions: how do rights of return, property restitution and compensation affect the claims to state territory? Concerning self-determination in the territory of former Palestine, which people are entitled to self-determination -- Palestinians, the Jewish people, Israeli Jews, or Israelis? And over which territory are the 'people' entitled to exercise their self-determination. The main legal principles and sources that provide the framework to address these questions are set out and examined.
