Fafo-report 236

Web edition

Constructing Order explores how Palestinian refugees adapt to their situation and how they reconstruct a semblance of order in their lives. In three separate sections, the book focuses on how refugees have adapted to conditions of life in a Gaza refugee camp, labour migration to the Gulf and in returning to the West Bank.

Anthropological and qualitative in nature, the book describes how Palestinians set about constructing their economic, social and cultural adaptations to the changing circumstances in which they live.
