September 22, 2011: Special Feature from the James A. Baker III Institute for Public Policy
Baker Institute Special Feature: The Palestinian bid for statehood
The Palestinian bid for statehood: Ramifications for U.S. policy

Given the lack of progress in Israeli-Palestinian peace negotiations, the Palestinians are seeking recognition as a state through a United Nations Security Council resolution and/or by the United Nations General Assembly for nonmember observer state status.

The Baker Institute is providing timely analysis of this developing situation, including what a UN vote on Palestinian statehood might mean for U.S. policymakers:
The Baker Institute's Conflict Resolution Program has been working for years on the Israeli-Palestinian issue, most recently publishing "Getting to the Territorial Endgame of an Israeli-Palestinian Peace Settlement," a report that offers concrete recommendations for policymakers on this concern.

For more analysis of the Arab Awakening, including the situations in Syria and Libya, visit the Baker Institute's "U.S. Policy in the Middle East."
