                            ABSTRACT

    Article ID of the 1951 Refugee Convention singles out individuals
who  receive aid from UN agencies, and specifically applies to Palestinian
refugees receiving aid from  the UN   Refugee  and Works   Agency
(UNRWA).   While  Article ID was first introduced to afford Palestinian
refugees heightened protection, national courts have often interpreted this
clause to leave Palestinian refugees without protection. More than 60 years
after the initial refugee crisis, how does this provision affect displaced
Palestinians today? This paper shows that the haphazard interpretation of
Article ID has often left Palestinian refugees without protection and that
this lack of protection has been exacerbated for Palestinians fleeing the
crisis in Syria. One solution would be to enable the UNHCR to take on
some  of the protective functions that used to be provided by the now-
defunct UN Conciliation Commission for Palestine.
