A century of the Balfour Declaration. A heuristic approach to its geopolitics.- Joaquín M. Pellicer Balsalobre

A century after Balfour Declaration were published, it is an opportunity to achieve a new approach that allows to know the answer about <<how>>, instead of <<why>>, Britain´s acknowledged public support for the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people. Process tracing methodology, developed by George and Bennet in 1979, can be a very useful tool to carry out with-in case based on a qualitative data. The method is based in casual-process observations and it is able to establish the casual sequence of events in the generation of the declaration as final outcome. Allison models of his book The Essence of Decision are used to achieve the research that provides a minimally sufficient explanation of the outcome. Fear, uncertainty and pragmatism drives Great Britain behavior in the making decision process in Middle East during the First World War.
