Abstract

This synthesis report is based on eleven thematic reports: one presenting the methodology of the study, and ten dealing with the living conditions of the Palestine refugees. Written by various authors, the reports analyse the results of the surveys undertaken in the summer of 2005 in the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East’s (UNRWA’s) five fields of operation. The surveys were carried out under the auspices of the IUED (The Graduate Institute of Development Studies at the University of Geneva) and the UCL (The Institute of Development Studies at the Catholic University of Louvain). The synthesis report highlights the research strategies and theoretical assumptions adopted in the thematic reports, key empirical findings of the surveys taking into account crosscutting linkages, and policy-relevant research implications. On a few occasions, further analysis was conducted in order to enrich the analysis and stress results outlined in the thematic reports. As well, the synthesis report is used to contextualise the findings, where possible, by comparing the survey data to available national data of the host authorities.
