In BADIL’s Survey of Palestinian Refugees and Internally Displaced Persons 2013-2015, a questionnaire was conducted to examine the perceptions of Palestinian refugees residing in UNRWA camps with regards to their knowledge of international protection and their preferred paths to durable solutions. Specifically, this article analyzes the results of one of the most significant questions of the questionnaire: what are the three most important pathways to achieve durable solutions for the Palestinian refugees? The questionnaire was completed by Palestinian refugees in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, Jordan and Lebanon, who were given ten options to choose from (see table below). This article examines the overall results in all the areas, the results of each area separately and provides possible interpretations for the variations.
