Working Papers

These are occasional research papers on specific issues that affect the ongoing displacement of the Palestinian people. The working papers are intended to encourage debate, and to stimulate discussion and critical comment. They draw upon desk and/or field research, and they aim to identify and explore the key components of the ongoing displacement of Palestinians, international law and the rights of Palestinians refugees and IDPs, and the protection gaps they suffer.
