The Interspersed Nation-State System: A Two-State/One-Land Solution for the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict
Abstract:This article explores the use of non-territorial state structures as a two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. By presenting a nation-state that exists over certain people, and not exclusive territory, this article offers a method for Israelis and Palestinians to each have the self-determination of an independent government while being able to mutually exist over disputed land. While the territorial state structure was designed in the 17th century, this new system may better fit modern conditions.
