The Road to Palestinian Statehood

After almost a century of dispossession, subjugation, discrimination and suffering, Palestinians continue to live under foreign occupation and are still striving to fulfill their dreams of an independent and sovereign state in the face of inexorable Israeli violations of international law, the passive or active complicity of their Arab state neighbors and the wider international community, as well as the ongoing divisions and internal conflicts in their midst. This publication retraces the history of the Palestinian struggle for statehood, from the exordium of the Palestinian national movement to the recent bid for statehood at the United Nations.
