The Oslo Accords signed in 1993 were supposed to end in a final settlement of the Palestine-Israel conflict after an interim period of five years.

25 years on, the ‘final settlement’ still has not been reached, with the seven ‘permanent status’ issues yet to be negotiated.

To the same degree that the Palestinians did not achieve their independence and statehood, so too the Israelis have failed to realise their exclusive and democratic Jewish state, with a Jewish majority.

Why has the Oslo peace process continued for so long with no tangible success? What next for the peace process?
