From Relief and Works to Human Development: UNRWA and Palestinian Refugees after 60 years
16 December 2010
December 2009 marked the 60th anniversary of UNRWA: an occasion for sober reflection but also an opportunity to assess the Agency's challenges and achievements during six decades of work alongside millions of Palestine refugees.
Within this framework, UNRWA and the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs (IFI) at the American University of Beirut (AUB) organised an international conference on October 8 and 9 2010. The conference assembled a critical body of academic and policy research around UNRWA's six-decade-long experience in supporting Palestine refugees.
