Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter is based on the assumption that the Palestine Mandate was a valid legal instrument and, therefore, the legal acts deriving from the Mandate were, in principle, also valid. The chapter attempts to achieve three objectives: academic, juridical and policy. At the academic level, the chapter intends to fill the gap in the existing literature with regard to Palestinian nationality. In the juridical field, this chapter illustrates the international legal status of Palestinian nationality and how it stood at the end of the mandate. The chapter provides some guidance to policy makers. This guidance might be useful to both the Palestinian Authority (PA) and to the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO). It addresses the question of Palestinian nationality under the British rule from the viewpoint of public international law. This chapter presents an overview of how the other chapters of the book are organised.

Keywords: academic level; British rule; international law; international legal status; juridical field; Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO); Palestinian Authority (PA); Palestinian nationality; policy makers
