Understanding the poorest of the Palestinian refugees

28. November 2019

This report focuses on the circumstances of non-citizen ex-Gaza Palestinian refugees living inside refugee camps in Jordan. Combining statistical and qualitative data, it demonstrates that ex-Gazans in Jerash camp are significantly poorer and that their pattern and type of employment differs from ex-Gazans and citizen refugees elsewhere. The report explores the work and livelihood practices of ex-Gazans in Jerash camp in order to better understand how their non-citizen status and location in Jerash camp intersect to exacerbate their poor socio-economic conditions.
