Abstract [en]

This thesis aims to study what are the current protection challenges faced by Palestinian

refugee children and their families in the context of the protracted crisis in the occupied

territories of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Furthermore, this study will also look at

how different factors influence on children's well-being, enabling or impeding to build

their resilience under the ongoing adversarial circumstances. In addition, it will also

analyse what mechanisms and strategies ensure the inclusive participation of Palestinian

refugee children in their communities.

Therefore, this thesis will use a mixed method approach, combining the outcomes of

interviews that have been conducted with UNRWA personnel and the review of

secondary sources. Two main theories will be used for the analysis of the research

findings: Transactional-Ecological model and Social Ecology of Protection. The aim is

to gain a better insight into how supportive environments and factors can be

strengthened. As a consequence, it encourages Palestinian refugee children's ability to

build resilience towards their social integration, which allows them to become actors of

their own protection and be empowered.
