On September 10, 2011 the Arab Center for Research and Policy Studies held a seminar entitled
“The Palestinian September: Between the Oslo Track and Reverting to International Institutions”. In tandem with the eighteenth anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Principles (the Oslo Accords) between the Palestinian Liberation Organization and the Israeli government, the event took place a mere ten days before the Palestinian Authority's official bid for full membership of the United Nations as the State of Palestine, which was to have as recognized borders those territories seized by the Israelis following the 1967 Six Day War. Notably, this would have included East Jerusalem as the putative capital of a Palestinian state.
The seminar included two sessions as follows:
Session One: The legal significance of resorting to the United Nations, and Arab and wider global reactions to this.
- Moderated by Mr. Ali Dufairi
Session Two: Political Ramifications: From bi-lateral negotiations to international rulings. What changes?
- Moderated by Dr. Basem Sarhan
