UNRWA its work and archives with Anne Irfan and Jo Kelcey

UNRWA has often been described as a quasi-government or even a quasi-state for millions of Palestinian refugees across the Middle East. Active since 1950 it provides services more typically the domain of the modern nation-state, including a large-scale education program, healthcare, municipal services in the camps, and registration procedures. UNRWA is the only organization in the world that has continuously collected and maintained data about Palestinian refugees since the Nakba. Anne Irfan and Jo Kelcey, authors of an upcoming article for the Jerusalem Quarterly talk about UNRWA as an organization but also as an archive, a source for Palestinian history.
