We would like to draw your attention to a number of resources released this summer:
1) BADIL Information and Discussion Brief No. 7:
"UNHCR, PALESTINIAN REFUGEES and DURABLE SOLUTIONS" (August 2002).
This Brief provides an overview of the UNHCR vis--vis Palestinian refugees. It examines the unique and complex relationship between UNHCR and Palestinian refugees as set forth in the 1950 Statute of the UNHCR and the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees and raises questions about a UNHCR role concerning international protection and the search for and implementation of durable solutions for Palestinian refugees based on a review of UNHCR's mandate, operational experience, and political environment.
