Passed on 7 December 1973 by the UN General Assembly, not long after the 1973 War; the primary subject is the financing and operation of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East. However, referencing the fourth Geneva Convention, Security Council Resolution 194, and a number of subsequent resolutions, it establishes an explicit connection between the Palestinians' right of return and their right to self-determination. The right of return is mentioned in several places but the clearest statement is in clause 3: "[The General Assembly] Declares that full respect for and realization of the inalienable rights of the people of Palestine, particularly its right to self-determination, are indispensable for the establishment of a just and lasting peace in the Middle East, and that the enjoyment by the Palestine Arab refugees of their right to return to their homes and property, recognized by the General Assembly in resolution 194 (III) of 11 December 1948, which has been repeatedly reaffirmed by the Assembly since that date, is indispensable for the achievement of a just settlement of the refugee problem and for the exercise by the people of Palestine of its right to self-determination."

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).
Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
