Description
Palestine Refugees: Present and Future Challenges

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) has been in charge of providing health, education, relief and social services to Palestinians since 1949. Since then, the number of refugees served by the agency has grown from 800,000 to more than four million. Are UNRWA’s serviced keeping up with this demographic explosion? How have the violence and destruction since the breakdown of the Oslo Peace process affected the agency’s operations and finances? What are the long-term consequences of decreasing opportunities for education, restrictions of movement and – above all – worsening unemployment and poverty among Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza Strip? In this edition of World Chronicle, these issues are explored with the Commissioner-General of UNRWA, Peter Hansen.
