This book offers diverse perspectives on the Palestinian refugee problem and the possible ways to facilitate its resolution. It contains contributions of Israeli, Palestinian and other scholars, and its main goal is to initiate an informed dialogue that will bridge the "knowledge gap" between the different camps. The book is the culmination of a joint effort to assist people to realize how people on the other side envision the problem and the possible ways to resolve it, and to gain a comparative perspective on refugee problems and their resolution efforts in other parts of the world. The contributors come from diverse disciplines and backgrounds and their various contributions provide a comprehensive picture of the various aspects of the problem and of the possible means of its resolution.
