Publications resulting from his research on human rights and international law include:

Tal Becker, an international lawyer who served as an assistant legal adviser at the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, is the author of a comprehensive study addressing the legal implications for the international community of a unilateral declaration of a Palestinian state.

Countries such as China, Russia, India, and Indonesia -- that may be inclined recognize a unilaterally declared Palestinian state -- should think twice about doing so, lest this be used as a precedent for secessionist movements in their own countries.

For the complete study, see "International Recognition of a Unilaterally Declared Palestinian State: Legal and Policy Dilemmas".
