Palestine refugees: Information for policy

Fafo-paper 2005:22

Web edition

Forskningstema: Midtøsten og Nord-Afrika

This collection presents information on Palestine refugees living in the four main host countries in the Middle East, i.e. Jordan, the West Bank and Gaza, Syria and Lebanon. The information is distilled from the series of living conditions surveys that Fafo has undertaken in the region with financial support from Norway.

The collection consists of two main parts: First, we present statistical information on the refugees in the form of fact sheets where each fact sheet presents data on one topic. Second, we include five short papers addressing topics of interest for future policy for the Palestinian Authority. These papers have been drafted by various Fafo researchers using available statistical information. These papers are exploratory in nature and do not draw clear conclusions or recommendations. The authors are only responsible for the analyses and views presented.

A team of Fafo researchers has contributed to this collection. Fact sheets have been prepared by deputy managing director Jon Pedersen and researchers Geir Øvensen, Laurie Blome Jacobsen and Kari Riisøen. The papers are written by researcher Geir Øvensen and deputy managing director Jon Pedersen.
