In this article I consider the nature and implications of the positions taken on Muslim personal status law by different institutional and civil society actors in the Palestinian West Bank and Gaza Strip during the period 1994-2000. The article considers positions taken on the sources and methodologies of reform of personal status law, the jurisdiction of the sharī'a courts, and specific areas of substantive law, with a view to identifying the range of opinions within the bounds of which Palestinian family law might be framed. Areas of convergence and divergence emerge not only between but also within the different sectors, while explicit reference to the legislation of other Arab states underlines a strong regional identification and, less explicitly, an emerging 'normative' status attaching to the diverse codified provisions of national laws.
