This text presents a comprehensive legal analysis of the Oslo Accords. Professor Geoffrey Watson begins by rejecting suggestions that the Accords are non-binding political undertakings. He argues instead that they are binding international agreements between subjects of international law. Professor Watson next analyzes Israeli and Palestinian compliance with the Accords. Watson concludes that each side has a mixed record of compliance, but that neither side has committed so serious a breach as to warrant termination of the Accords. Finally, Professor Watson offers some suggestions on how international law might help shape a final status agreement between the parties.
