Twenty years ago, the PLO Central Council approved the Oslo Accord with the Israeli government. Israeli-Palestinian talks were slated to conclude within 5 years, yet two decades on Israel’s occupation continues, and the situation on the ground has only moved backwards for Palestinians.
The infographic “20 Years of Talks,” produced in collaboration with AIDA (the Association of International Development Agencies) focuses on this deteriorating reality.
An ever-increasing Israeli settler population, continuing dispossession of Palestinians, and a comprehensive system of segregation define the landscape. In spite of the Palestinian Authority’s ‘statehood’ project, the feasibility of a ‘two-state solution’ is now widely questioned, while Palestinian self-determination and the return of refugees are barely discussed.
