Abstract

The Six Day War intensified the Palestinian refugee problem as tens of thousands of Palestinians fled from the West Bank to Jordan’s East Bank. The war created a new situation in which more than 50 per cent of the refugees who had been displaced from Israel in 1948 now lived in territories occupied by Israel. This gave rise to hopes that a solution could be found, at least for those refugees under Israeli rule. Officials in both the US and the UK proposed a variety of plans to this end. The article examines the different schemes and analyses the reasons why none of them was, in the end, implemented.
