Resolution 2334, adopted on December 23, 2016, is a firm condemnation of the Israeli government’s policy on the settlements. A key focus of the resolution is the effort to halt Israeli measures perceived as liable to thwart the implementation of a two-state solution. This refers primarily to construction outside the settlement blocs and Israeli legislative initiatives perceived as intended to change the legal status of the area. • Resolution 2334 is a resolution under Chapter 6 of the UN Charter, and does not include sanctions to be imposed on Israel for failure to implement it. Nonetheless, the damage that the resolution is liable to cause Israel in the international arena and in its relations with foreign states and international entities, including in the legal and economic spheres, should not be underestimated.
