The responsibility to enforce? : a study of the responsibility for the human rights of the Palestine refugees
Abstract: The question of the Palestine refugees has been an issue to the United Nations’ General Assembly (UNGA) ever since its creation in 1948, and it has played an immense role in the Israeli-Palestine conflict. Everyone involved wants to find a solution to the problem, but 65 years on, the issue is as complex as it has ever been. The question of which actor have the main human rights responsibility for the Palestine refugees remains unclear. This essay examines the United Nation’s perspective on the human rights responsibility for the Palestine refugees, via the use of Susan James theory Rights as Enforceable Claims to analyze the UNGA resolutions 194(III), 302(IV), 66/72, 67/19 and 67/114, and a document from the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA).
