Bailey’s “Enclaves for Peace” Plan (1993)

A plan first proposed by American-Israeli academic Clinton Bailey on 24 October 1991, with an updated version submitted to the Israeli cabinet on 1 February 1993. The plan suggested the establishment of three self-governing Palestinian enclaves in the West Bank, containing around 90 percent of the West Bank Arab population (excluding East Jerusalem) and only 10 percent of Israeli settlers. The Gaza Strip, including its Israeli settlements, would also come under Palestinian control.
