Summary
The United States, the European Union, Russia, and the United Nations-along with Israel and the Palestinian Authority-all officially support the establishment of an independent Palestinian state. This study focuses on a single analytical question: How can an independent Palestinian state, if created, be made successful? This book, a collaboration between two units of the RAND Corporation-RAND Health and the RAND Center for Middle East Public Policy-examines what it will take to put the new state on the road to stability and economic, political, and social prosperity over the first decade of its independence. The authors examine options for strengthening the governance of the new state and the structures and processes that will ensure its public safety and security. They describe approaches for promoting the state's economic development, access to safe and adequate supplies of water, health and health care, and education, identifying ways that leverage Palestine's many strengths and address the many challenges a new state will face. Finally, the authors estimate the investment required over the first ten years of statehood to help ensure security, build infrastructure, and facilitate the success of the new state
