About the Book
Great Britain recently marked the centenary to commemorate the First World War (World War I), 28 January 1914 – 11 November 1918. The Great War, as it was known, was not only the deadliest war in history but possibly the most transformative: its impact resonated through political change and revolutions throughout the world, defining new borders and determining dominions. One nation that knows this more than any other is that of Palestine, who’s future played out after growing support for Jewish migration during the war. This transmutation of the demographics and politics of Palestine is vehemently palpable today as the nations of Israel and Palestine find themselves in a protracted conflict and the Palestinians stateless and displaced. This combination of injustice, resistance and humanitarian catastrophe that has profound geo-political repercussions deserves astute historical and legal analysis.
The Palestinian Return Centre and Al Jazeera Centre for Studies are no better placed to do so and have been pioneering research and contributing significantly to the discourse around this issue for almost a decade. It is therefore, of no surprise for it to convene fourteen leading historians, lawyers, academics and officials to evaluate events preceding, during and after World War I in order to inform the view surrounding the Palestinian crisis.

There are more than eight million Palestinian refugees in the world. The vast majority live in Arab countries, mainly neighbouring Palestine, with smaller numbers scattered in different parts of the world. They all live under extremely challenging conditions that differ according to the host country’s socio-economic conditions and political climate; but include inadequate access to provisions, general treatment and attitudes and protection of human rights.
In Jabra Ibrahim Jabra’s largely escapist novel “The Ship,” written a few years after the Arab defeat of 1967, an infuriated refugee exclaims: “We spoke the truth till our throats grew hoarse, and we ended up as refugees in tents.”
This article examines the right to return of refugees and displaced persons. After an historical overview, the author first interprets the right to return enshrined in the International Bill of Rights. It is argued that there is a growing support for a broad right to return applicable to cases where it is being claimed by mass groups of people, even when non-nationals are concerned.
