by Rex Brynen, Roula El Rifai
Publisher: I. B. Tauris 2007
Number of pages: 263
The Palestinian refugee issue remains a central component of the Arab-Israeli conflict. In this book, bringing together the most cutting-edge research from various disciplines, Rex Brynen and Roula El-Rifai explore the demographic and developmental challenges that the return of refugees to a future Palestinian state would generate. As well as outlining the social conditions of Palestinian refugee populations, the book addresses key practical questions, such as how the repatriation of refugees would affect the Palestinian economy and how the international community can effectively support the repatriation of refugees.
