In August 2007, UNRWA and the ILO jointly implemented a household sample survey of the displaced Palestinian refugees from the Nahr El-Bared refugee camp. Fafo was asked to analyze the data at write up a descriptive report. At the time, approximately one-half of the displaced were accommodated in the nearby Beddawi refugee camp while the rest had found refuge primarily in and around Tripoli but also, in smaller numbers, in the Beqaa, Beirut, Saida and Tyre - inside as well as outside refugee camps.

Key features of the report are housing conditions, social relations, education and employment. When relevant the report also draws on additional sources, including Fafo’s 2006 labour force survey of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.
