By Aharon Klieman

Based on the demanding situations of bringing the tenacious Israeli-Palestinian clash to an finish, many have provided grand historic views, obscure formulation, or visionary new proposals. Aharon Klieman, even if, is going past summary reflections to supply a transparent and functional overview of which matters could be very important within the upcoming negotiations, and why. on the best of his checklist is the partitionist technique of dividing land via political and territorial compromise. Territorial partition -an notion circulating for over sixty years -becomes extra famous now, based on Klieman, and is the one possible alternative (if any) for finishing the clash. Compromising Palestine argues that whereas the Oslo peace accords are an incredible statement of rules and supply a mechanism for peace, they're singularly ambiguous and don't offer tangible suggestions, which needs to be sought via functional compromises and urban plans to the letter by way of either side. Falling among wide common dialogue and real operational plans, this concise, basically centred, and wonderfully written e-book will supply a really beneficial reference element for someone following the peace strategy -whether educational, coverage maker, or common reader -and will give a contribution to the standard of study at every one degree of the controversy throughout the an important ultimate prestige interval.

Example text

While very far from being universally endorsed and enthusiastically promoted, political and territorial compromise are nevertheless widely acknowledged to be one of the precious few conflict resolution formulas worthy of serious consideration in trying to cope with the politics of ethnicity. In a sense, territorial division is the handmaiden of ethnic compartmentalization and separation. A further battery of arguments consistent with territorial compromise is inspired by contemporary emphases in the scientific study of international relations.

If anything, it is hard to exaggerate the importance of the designated “peace construct,” which is nothing short of indispensable. First, these constructs serve as a compass in authoritatively pointing the way out of war traps. Second, as a manual for steering the negotiations in the right direction and toward a final destination. Third, in framing appropriate settlement terms. Fourth, as a guide for drawing the territorial peace map and for delineating peace borders. Fifth, as the blueprint for an entirely new set of economic and other relationships governing normalization in the postsettlement phase.

Territorial adjustment and compensation are traditionally subsumed within the political realist approach. For much of world history partitioning contested land has served as one of the instruments most favored for balancing power between competitive actors in an anarchic, self-help regional or international system. Negotiation theory, in turn, certainly places the highest emphasis upon bargaining strategies that encourage give and take and compromise. Again, the supreme value of compromise is highlighted as well in the extensive literature emerging from empirical and conceptual work in recent years on nationalism and ethnic conflict and, not least, peace research itself.
