Abstract

Under the terms of this historic agreement signed on the White House lawn in September 1993, a number of issues -- those most central to the Palestinian-Israeli conflict and therefore the most difficult to resolve-- were deferred to the "final status" phase of the peace process. The IPS series seeks to provide background, documentation, and negotiating option on these issues that will determine the final shape of the Palestinian-Israeli peace.
