Twice dispossessed: Palestinian refugees in Syria deprived of housing, land and property rights

Impunity Watch and PAX supported the efforts of a team of Palestinian-Syrian researchers to collect hours of first-hand testimony of the experiences of Palestinian Syrians from Yarmouk Camp, from its establishment in 1948 to the battles and sieges of the Syrian conflict post-2011, its occupation by ISIS and finally its re-occupation by the Syrian regime and near-emptying of its residents who had lived there for generations. This report focuses on the means Palestinian-Syrians have used to secure their housing, land and property (HLP) rights and the challenges they face in this complex context, aiming to give more space to voices from Yarmouk Рnot only as sources but also as producers of knowledge.
