Limits on Palestinian Self-Government

Limits on Palestinian Self-Government

(p.237) 12 Limits on Palestinian Self-Government
The Oslo Accords


Oxford University Press

This chapter asks whether the Palestinian Authority (PA) is complying with the limits on Palestinian self-government imposed by the Accords. It argues that the PA appears to have exceeded some of the Accords' restrictions on Palestinian self-government. The size of the Palestinian police force exceeds that permitted by the Interim Agreement, though it remains to be seen whether Israel will vigorously object to this development, which might help the PA abide by its obligation to maintain a ‘strong’ police force. The PA also appears to have exceeded the geographic and functional limits on its governmental activity, in particular at Orient House in East Jerusalem.
