Conflicts in a Conflict

A Conflict of Laws Case Study on Israel and the Palestinian Territories

Michael Karayanni and Center for International Legal Education

  • Outlines the jurisdictional designs of the territories Israel occupied in the 1967 Six-Day War, with special emphasis on the West Bank and the Gaza Strip, both before and after the Oslo Peace Process
  • Offers an extensive analysis of the adjudicative jurisdictional capacity of Israeli courts to deal with civil disputes originating in the Palestinian Territories, as well as the application of the forum non conveniens doctrine to such claims, and the entitlement of the Palestinian Authority to sovereign immunity when sued before an Israeli court
  • Discusses how the current choice of law rules, and how their application has affected the residents of the Palestinian Territories in their daily lives
  • This research will greatly serve scholars and practitioners in similarly troubled and complex legal settings elsewhere
