Marking 60th anniversary of UNRWA: Report and Study to be release
The conference scheduled on Wednesday, 16th of December is expected to accommodate hundreds of guests which include Journalists, activists and academics based in the UK and around the world. The participation of representatives of Palestinian Refugees from officials in Syria, Lebanon and Jordan is an added rarity in such conference as they will provide opportunity to discuss findings from a survey of Palestinian refugees in the camps.
The Center has received wide interest from the public and various officials around the world. PRC are committed to making this event free of admission for those interested in the Palestinian cause and those that work directly or in related fields.
Key speakers in the conference include British MPs who will chair the main sessions which will be announced shortly in the program.
According to Majed al zeer, General Director of PRC, the conference will produce a number of recommendations that would be used by the Center and other Educational Research institution and policy makers.
“We will insure implementation of the outputs of this vital conference. Experts, Politicians, MPs, activists and Journalists will provide in depth analysis that will enhance the work of all institutions working in similar environments. We will touch upon all recent problems and future perspectives upon which we would launch specific actions to tackle them.” Said al zeer
PRC regards this conference as a series of intense actions to raise awareness of Palestinian cause on top of which for Palestinians is always the right of Return.
The Center will also release a detailed report about a parliamentarian delegation organized by PRC 4 weeks ago.
The delegation also visited refugee camps sheltering Palestinians from the Nakhba in 1948 in Danon and Speina located south of the Syrian capital Damascus. The delegation met with Syrian president Bashar Al Asad where they discussed different methods to ease the suffering of Palestinian refugees in the camps and more importantly to find an imminent solution for those stranded on the borders between Syria and Iraq.
The delegation met UNCHR representatives and heard about their daily operations in the camps. The delegation showed their appreciation and expressed their deep support for the Organization since it plays a crucial role in providing for the daily needs of the refugees.
