The Balfour Project website is a forum for open and responsible debate on Britain’s role in the history of Israel and Palestine, its continuing responsibility to work for equal rights, and feasible solutions or outcomes.   The site is intended to raise awareness, increase knowledge and inform policy discussion. The Project will be careful to ensure that articles, postings, book reviews and other contributions are acceptable within the terms of its own aims and ethos. It stresses, however, that the Project’s Trustees do not necessarily share the views of individual contributors.
