About the event: 

In this episode of Palestine Studies TV, we discuss a recent attempt by the US Senate to change the US government's policy on how Palestinian refugees are defined. We explore how this legislation could impact negotiations on the right of return, as well as the potential consequences for UNRWA and the 5 million refugees it serves in the occupied Palestinian territories and neighboring countries.
