Example text

49 Article 1D of the Refugee Convention has very different definitional criteria, and, although it does not mention any particular group, was meant to apply exclusively to Palestinian refugees. ”50 Article 1D’s two clauses have been subjected to widely divergent interpretations by states, the UN, and experts in the field. The general result, however, is that Palestinians have been denied most of the minimum protection guarantees of the Refugee Convention. 52 Both incorporate language similar to the first sentence of Article 1D, thereby precluding an extension of UNHCR’s mandate towards Palestinians as refugees, and an application of the benefits of the Stateless Persons Convention.

Since Palestinians are unable to regularize their status, they are subjected to prolonged detention in many cases because there is no state of nationality or habitual residence to which they can be returned. Nor do states provide them residence in fulfillment of the obligations to reduce statelessness. 60 The legal “protection gap” for Palestinians is even more acute in terms of the ultimate resolution of the Palestinian refugee problem, a resolution which requires guarantees for and mechanisms to implement durable solutions.
