Family-making across borders: Conflicts, migrations and Palestinian family dispersion

Description du projet

As part of the LAJEH project, I will work on Palestinian refugee’s families from Shatila camp who have been scattered across Lebanon, Syria, Saudi Arabia and Gaza during the 1970s and the 1990s and more recently Switzerland with the events in Syria. I will research how the different members of the family try to maintain ties beyond the various national borders and despite a limited mobility capacity due to their status and travel documents. The research is conducted in collaboration with Veronique Bontemps.
