Fafo in cooperation with the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) in Damascus, in coordination with the General Administration for Palestine Arab Refugees (GAPAR) in Syria, and with financial support from the Government of Norway, carried out a living conditions survey of almost 5,000 Palestinian refugee households at 65 different locations in Syria in 2001. The main report from that survey, “Palestinian Refugees in Syria: Human Capital, Economic Resources and Living Conditions”, documented the situation of Palestinian refugees with respect to demography, health, education, employment, economic resources, social networks, and housing.

Summarizing key findings from “Palestinian Refugees in Syria”, this report contrasts the situation of Palestinian refugees in the Syrian Arabic Republic with that of Palestinian refugees residing elsewhere, and draws comparisons between Palestinian refugees and the host-country population
