The Arab States and the Refugee Issue: A retrospective view

Abstract : Geared to an historical methodology, this article looks at the roots of the legal and political regime that was elaborated by the Arab states in the wake of the first Arab-Israeli war (1948) in order to tackle the refugee issue. Two interconnected dimensions of this regime are dealt with: the internal dimension, which is related to the refugees' status within the Arab host societies; and the international dimension, which envisions the refugee issue as a negotiation chip within the framework of the peace process with Israel and the funding of international assistance.
