Reconciling “Integration” and the Right of Return. Rethinking Palestinian Refugeehood


The research project investigates Palestinian refugees’ imaginaries, practices and attitudes towards the right of return in Lebanon, Jordan and the West Bank. The research departs from classic scholarly approaches to the concept of “return” to show how refugees in their everyday practices and lived experiences strategies reconcile “integration” in the host country with return.
