Palestinian refugees in Arab States: a rights-based approach

Palestinian refugees in Arab States: a rights-based approach

This paper tackles the issue of Palestinian refugees in host Arab States, their legal status and rights. The paper's criteria can be found in those universally accepted standards applicable to refugees, as a special category of persons in need of national and international protection and assistance, and in those minimum guarantees which are present in international conventions and declarations, applicable both in times of armed conflict/occupation and peace.

This paper suggests that these international measures adopted for Palestinian refugees are unsuitable and insufficient in the context of long conflicts and long-standing occupation.
