AGPS Underscores Situation of Palestinians of Syria at London Conference on UNRWA

AGPS concluded on Saturday a successful contribution to the one-day conference about the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), held by the Palestinian Return Centre (PRC).

Titled “UNRWA at 70: Responding to Crises and Building a Just Future”, the conference was held by PRC, in partnership with AlJazzeera Center for Studies and the European Center for Palestine Studies at the University of Exeter. It took place on Saturday, November 30, at a British Library venue.

AGPS representative, Ahmad Husain, spoke as part of the third session of the conference, entitled “the Unmaking of Palestinian Refugee Camps” and chaired by Karen AbuZayd. The session was devoted to discussions about the situation in refugee camps and communities across and outside UNRWA’s fields of operations.

AGPS Chief Executive Officer, Ahmad Hosain, discussed the situation in Palestinian refugee camps and communities in war-torn Syria and the pace of UNRWA’s operations both before and after the conflict.

Mr. Hosain also provided updated statistics about the number of victims and the serious human rights violations committed against the Palestine refugee community across the Syrian territories.

He further gave a set of recommendations, including the need for UNRWA to expand its geographical map to include registered Palestine refugees in Turkey, Egypt, and other destinations.

AGPS’ Executive Director also stressed UNRWA’s key role in providing life-saving services for the displaced Palestinian community in and outside Syria and called on the agency to adopt practical mechanisms in order to secure the refugees’ physical, moral, and legal protection.
