Living Conditions among Palestinian Refugee Women

  • Fafo-report 425

This report traces the living conditions, attitudes and experiences of Palestinian refugee women through the various arenas of their lives, including work, school, home, and family.

In a number of arenas there exists a discordance between women’s potential and the room given to women to exploit this potential. The social and economic space women occupy is limited. Despite women representing a large human and financial capital resource, few work. Those that do contribute very much to the household economy.
