Chatty and Hundt - Chapter 07
This multidisciplinary and regional study responds to a number of
concerns in contemporary research regarding children in general and
Palestinian refugees in particular. It addresses the need to recognise
the child and young person as part of a larger social community of
extended families, households, neighbourhoods, and local and national
communities. It also concerns itself with recognising the importance of
regional studies in areas where the case study has reigned supreme.
Each of these chapters illustrates how young Palestinian lives are
mediated by the specific historical, political and economic realities
that bear on them in their most recent place of temporary settlement.
