In 1977, the United Nations declared the 29th of November the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. It was on this day in 1947 that the United Nations General Assembly adopted the resolution on the partition of Palestine (resolution 181), intended to establish an Arab State and a Jewish State. With Israel having occupied the Palestinian territories since 1967 and Palestinians yet to realize their fundamental rights to self-determination, sovereignty and return to their homes from which they have been displaced, this United Nations International Day is a time for the international community to stand with Palestinian people and acknowledge that this situation and protracted protection crisis is far from resolved. To coincide with the UN day, Frontiers in Human Dynamics is launching a Research Topic to showcase the latest multidisciplinary research and insights into the situation of displaced Palestinians today.

This article collection in Frontiers in Human Dynamics is running alongside a related collection in Frontiers in Political Science.

Millions of Palestinians face dire humanitarian and socio-economic conditions having been deprived of their fundamental human rights and displaced from their homes. As well as continually encountering violence or the threat of violence, many lack access to electricity, clean water, healthcare, adequate shelter, education and employment. Millions are internally displaced or are refugees living predominantly in nearby Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. A third of registered Palestinian refugees live in camps, and around half are in need of humanitarian assistance. The Covid-19 global pandemic has exacerbated the already worsening humanitarian and socioeconomic situation.

The aim of this Research Topic is to shed light on the complex situation of Palestinians and the multifaceted challenges they face today, and to explore the local, national and international efforts to bring about solutions. Contributions that bring forward Palestinian voices and discuss how they see their own situation and navigate their challenges are particularly welcome.

This article collection seeks to bring together multidisciplinary and diverse viewpoints and welcomes manuscripts exploring themes including, but not limited to, the following:

• The humanitarian and socio-economic situation of internally displaced Palestinians and Palestinian refugees;
• Humanitarian protection and assistance from international organizations and NGOs;
• The impact of new international frameworks such as the Global Compact on Refugees;
• Achieving durable solutions for Palestinian refugees;
• Lived experiences of displaced Palestinians, taking into account differences in gender, age, sexuality, ability etc.;
• The evolving impact of Covid-19 on the humanitarian and socio-economic situation.

Keywords: Palestinian refugees, Israel-Palestine conflict, humanitarian crisis, humanitarian assistance, refugee protection


Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
