Resumen

En este estudio hacemos un análisis crítico del proceso de paz de Oslo iniciado entre palestinos e israelíes en 1993, poniendo de manifiesto cómo estos acuerdos son elementos constitutivos a través de los cuales se manifiestan dos formas de colonialismo que operan y se configuran sobre la tierra de Palestina. Una basada en la lógica de apropiación/violencia, ejercida por Israel; y otra de modernización/desarrollo, ejercida por los donantes internacionales a través de su definición del proceso de paz desde el paradigma de la paz liberal. Se hablará de la narrativa de paz de Oslo, entendido como un marco estructural e ideológico que actúa como una matriz de control que se complementa con estas dos formas de colonialismo llegando a legitimarlas.

Palabras clave: Palestina, paz liberal, colonialismo, Acuerdos de Oslo

 


Abstract

In this paper, we conduct a critical analysis of the Oslo peace process which was launched in 1993 by Palestinians and Israelis. Through this analysis, we show that the Oslo Accords are constituent elements that reflect the two forms of colonialism that take form and operate on the land of Palestine. One is based on the logic of appropriation/violence and is exerted by Israel, whereas the other is based on the logic of modernisation/development and is practised by international donors, as they define the peace process according to the liberal peace paradigm. We also discuss the narrative of the Oslo peace process, understood as a structural and ideological framework that serves as a control matrix and is complemented by the aforementioned forms of colonialisms, and which eventually manages to legitimize them.

Keywords: Palestine, liberal peace, colonialism, Oslo Accords
