UNRWA is considered as the greatest living witness on the Palestinian refugee issue, and the biggest documentation bank for the oldest Asylum issue in the world and issue that has stayed longest on the UN agenda. Political voices are emerging calling for the termination of UNRWA, reflected in policies calling for a reduction in its role, financial blackmail of the donor countries and Israeli air raids on the headquarters of UNRWA in Gaza.
This Poll was conducted in two important regions of UNRWA’s operations - Syria and Lebanon. We intended to conduct the poll in a region where the Palestinian refugees suffer from difficult legal situation and denial of basic civil rights (Lebanon), and where situation of the Palestinian refugees is relatively better in terms of legal status in the host country (Syria) in order to get the most precise scientific results. In addition, the abstract views of the Palestinian refugees should be viewed in the context of the established legal right to self-determination of the refugees.
