Book by Rebecca Roberts, Coventry University
Reviewed by Natasha N. Iskander, New York University
Natasha N. Iskander, Associate Professor of Public Policy at New York University, reviews Palestinians in Lebanon: Refugees Living with Long-Term Displacement. The book examines the situation of 200,000 Palestinian refugees, who are prevented from returning to Palestine but forbidden from fully settling into Lebanon and remain in temporary shelters and camps after six decades. Poverty and unemployment are high among the refugees, and poor conditions are exacerbated by the refusal of the Lebanese government to grant the Palestinians rights to representation, land ownership, and work.
