[November 2013] Among the continuing flurry of global media coverage on the crisis in Syria, the situation of the estimated 6 million displaced by conflict has gained only sporadic reportage. Meanwhile, the second large-scale displacement of the longstanding Palestinian refugee population in Syria has been little mentioned. The infographic ‘Back to School’–produced by VP in partnership with UNRWA and the EU–highlights the challenges faced by Palestinian refugee children from Syria, from displacement and school closures to the simple uncertainty over whether they will have access to education.


Data provided by UNRWA. 24,000 out of 67,000 Palestine refugee children attending UNRWA schools in Syria in the first half of 2013.
