ABSTRACT
The article discusses the Palestinian Liberation Organisation's request for state recognition and the right of return for refugees at the United Nations (UN). The article argues that the decision to seek recognition was made in response to the Arab Spring uprisings, unsuccessful peace negotiations, and desire to make Palestinian leadership more credible. Full membership to the UN is opposed by the U.S. and Israel, but recognition could force Israelis to withdraw from sovereign territory.
