"AUBatLebanon | December 28, 2010
The Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs (IFI) at the American University of Beirut (AUB) and UNRWA held an international conference entitled: 'FROM RELIEF AND WORKS TO HUMAN DEVELOPMENT: UNRWA AND PALESTINIAN REFUGEES AFTER 60 YEARS'.
The conference assembled a critical body of academic and policy research around UNRWA's six-decade-long experience in supporting Palestine refugees.
December 2009 marked the 60th anniversary of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestine Refugees in the Near East: an occasion for sober reflection but also an opportunity to assess the Agency's challenges and achievements during six decades of work alongside millions of Palestine refugees.
