The report highlighted the calamitous situation of the Palestinians of Syria as a result of war-related incidents. As shown above, the Palestinian refugee community from Syria has been grappling with a vulnerable legal status and shorn of the right to physical and moral protection.
The situation has been no less tragic in the new asylum destinations, where the Palestinians of Syria are treated as foreigners and stateless individuals, and are thus, denied the right to permanent stays, family reunifications, access to labor market, and free movement inside and out.
The report dovetails ongoing attempts by AGPS and PRC to bring the news of the Palestinians of Syria to the forefront. Despite the difficulties and risks emerging on the scene, as war has kicked into full gear since March 2011, intensive research has been conducted to draw a true-to-life picture of the situation of the Palestinian refugee community.
