“Palestinian Refugees, holders of Jordanian Nationality, Living in Inner-City Amman-Jordan: Exploring the Current Economic Opportunities”

 

In this brainstorming discussion, Oroub Al-Abed presented her research project which studies the dynamics of power that influenced the 'economic integration’ of Palestinian refugees in Arab host countries and the drastic change in economic opportunities they have been able to access since 1988. Almost sixty two years today after their dispossession, the 'economic integration’ of Palestinian refugees, as envisioned by the United Nations to settle the refugees in host countries, has not materialised. This work unfolds the factors that have impacted Palestinian refugees, particularly those living and seeking economic opportunities in inner city of Amman-Jordan since 1988, when major economic and political changes were taking place.
