Summary/Abstract: The period of the British Mandate for Palestine (assigned by the League of Nations) is fundamental not only to the establishment of the State of Israel, but to a better understanding of the ongoing Israeli–Palestinian conflict as well. The present article explores the land question in Palestine since the Ottoman Empire, where the local specifics pave the way for the subsequent change in land ownership of some Palestinian territories. Then there are the multiple legislative documents issued under the British rule, which affect land transfers. At the same time the Zionist movement works diligently towards establishing а “national home for the Jewish people” in Palestine by buying land from private owners. Yet, the article aims to remain neutral while exploring the land question in Palestine during the British Mandate and while summarizing its findings.
