New publication IEMed – Palestinian refugees from Syria, K. Doraï

149. From Refugees to Asylum Seekers? Palestinian Refugees and the Syrian ConflictThis paper analyses the host states’ response to the arrival of Palestinian refugees escaping Syria since 2011. This issue raises the wider question of the status of Palestinian refugees who seek asylum in a third country. Their status has a strong impact both on how they settle in their host country and their access to mobility and protection in the context of conflicts. The current forced migration of Palestinian refugees, largely overshadowed by the magnitude of the Syrian refugee crisis, raises many questions regarding the status of refugees forced to leave their countries of first asylum to seek refuge in a third country out of any framework for international protection.
