Les réfugiés palestiniens en Europe : complexité des parcours et des espaces migratoires

Abstract : Palestinian Refugees in Europe. A Complexity of Migratory Routes and Spaces.-- Some 100,000 Palestinians live in Europe. The continent began to appear a favourable place for Palestinians in the1970's, allowing them to find work and ensure a stable family life. Might Europe become an important region for the Palestinian Diaspora in the future? Is it a region of resettlement for Palestinians or a space for work emigration like the petroleum producing countries? Might we foresee an evolution similar to that of the Palestinians of the United States who form a dynamic and structured group within the Diaspora? After a general overview of the main Palestinian communities in Europe and of the legal situation of the Palestinians of Lebanon, the main causes of departure of this community are analysed. The phases of arrival in Europe are differentiated to then analyse the current workings of clandestine migration. Lebanon, which represents the main country of departure toward Europe, is studied in more detail. The situation of Sweden is also further analysed due to the specificity of this host country and the relative lack of knowledge of the situation of the Palestinians who live there. This work is based essentially on two field studies in Lebanon and Sweden
