The paper demonstrates that to successfully reconcile refugees with the surrounding community, we first should work on a process of redesign and re-shape the relationships between refugees and non-refugees. As those two categories don’t stand on an equal footing; without mutual respectful relations, negative attitudes against refugees are existent due to misunderstanding, prejudice, inequality, misperception, stereotyping and racism. As a consequence, there are obvious differences and therefore a gap created between refugees and non-refugees especially those who live in the neighborhood.
The heart of this paper is genuinely Palestinian, as it brings along a real case which is Jalazoun as one of the refugee camps locates north of Ramallah and neighbors a village called Jefna. I took the decision to handle this case as I claim that there is a pressing need to pursue one forms of the reconciliations between Jalazoun camp and Jefna.
