No place like home: An Assessment of the Housing, Land and Property Rights of Palestinian Refugee Women in Camps and Gatherings in Lebanon

The Norwegian Refugee Council (NRC) has embarked on a three-year initiative designed to help increase displaced women's access to housing, land and property rights through international and national advocacy. The project aims to provide well-researched legal, policy and practice recommendations for the humanitarian community, including practitioners, donors, governments and civil society.

The purpose of this Assessment is to identify the main housing, land and property (HLP) issues affecting Palestinian refugee women living in camps and gatherings in Lebanon, to examine the challenges they face in seeking enjoyment of their HLP rights and to explore how the protection of these rights might be promoted and strengthened. The Assessment outlines specific issues affecting Palestinian refugee women in Lebanon and the challenges they encounter in attempting to secure their HLP rights, owing to their status as refugees in Lebanon and to their particular circumstances as women. It offers a rights-based analysis of the laws applicable to Palestinian refugee women’s HLP rights in Lebanon.
