Washington Report on Middle East Affairs;Dec2010, Vol. 29 Issue 9, p14
The article reports on the status of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon as of December 2010. It highlights the need for a repatriation to a newly formed state of Palestine in helping Lebanon's Palestinian refugees escape their plight. For the author, permanent resettlement in Lebanon is the most contentious solution for the country's refugees. He considers an amalgam of return, repatriation and resettlement as the solution to Lebanon's Palestinian refugee problem.
