Abstract

The Oslo Accords have been the subject of considerable debate ever since the first agreement was signed in 1993. Twenty-five years later, the situation on the ground stands today as a reflection of all the insufficiencies of Oslo and allows us to identify some of the lessons that the international community could learn from the peace process for which the Accords were the launching pad. An almost desperate situation paradoxically opens a window of opportunity for Europe. The European Union (EU) and its member states must live up to their status as normative powers and move from “payer” to “player” in defence of international law once and for all.
