Abstract

This thesis is concerned with examining the right of return and compensation, under international law, of Jordanian nationals who are of Palestinian refugee origin exclusively and Jordan's right as their state of nationality to bring claims on their behalf to and against Israel. It does not concern itself with other categories of Palestinian refugees who are not Jordanian nationals although the two rights of return and compensation arguably apply to all Palestinian refugees. The thesis also aims at examining Jordan's right as a host country, under international law, to bring compensation claims to and against Israel for creating the Palestinian refugee problem. It examines the legal bases for such a right, under international law in the context of State Responsibility for wrongful acts along with relevant provisions of the 1994 Jordan-Israel Peace Treaty. The thesis attempts to critically assess, analyze and examine major claims that Jordan can bring to and against Israel against principles of international law both on behalf of its nationals of Palestinian refugee origin and in relation to the right of return and compensation and claims of its own as a host state to and against Israel. It also critically assesses and examines the procedures and mechanisms available for the pursuit of such claims that are available to Jordan in the context of the 1994 Jordan-Israel Peace Treaty along with non Peace Treaty based procedures and mechanisms.
