Balfour Declaration

The name Balfour Declaration is applied to two key British government policy statements associated with Conservative statesman Arthur Balfour.

The first Balfour Declaration of 1917 committed Britain to favouring the establishment of a Jewish national home in Palestine.

The second Balfour Declaration of 1926 recognised the self-governing Dominions of the British Empire as fullly autonomous states.
