Irregular Migration in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (oPt): Socio-Political Perspectives

Authors Yasser SHALABI
Description
Covering the issue of irregular migration in the occupied Palestinian territories (oPt) must take into consideration: Palestinian refugees, the Palestinian labour force in the Israeli labour market and the illegal Israeli settlements in the West Bank including Jerusalem. A number of interrelated factors contribute to Palestinian migration. Some of them are structural and are related to the historical and political conditions of Palestine, mainly occupation and the coercive displacement and uprooting and the absence of an independent state, while others can be considered policy-related and are linked to Israeli policies and measures in its occupation of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip including Jerusalem from 1967 to the present day. Finally, there are some internal policy-related factors that relate to the economic and social policies adopted by the Palestinian National Authority (PNA). In general, we can argue that irregular migration is not evident as a phenomenon within the oPt, rather it characterizes displaced Palestinians. But a predominant phenomenon within the oPt are the Israeli settlements and Jewish settlers who live in the oPt as part of the Israeli occupation and Israeli control over the Palestinian territories.

Highly-skilled migration into, through and from the southern and eastern Mediterranean and sub Saharan Africa. The case of Palestine

Authors Mustafa KHAWAJA
Description
Today, the Palestinian Territories are, in terms of numbers emigrating, second only to Jordan and Iran among Middle Eastern and North African countries. Emigration flows increased particularly after the Israeli invasion of Lebanon in 1982 and the First Gulf War (1990-91). The same occurred after the crisis of September 2000, when previously unheard of levels of poverty were registered. This paper approaches highly-skilled emigration from the Palestinian Territories by using surveys aimed at investigating those who wished to leave the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. Specifically, research conducted in 2007 on a sample of health and higher-education sector employees reveals that 31% wanted to emigrate; in the same year, another survey stressed that one third of the young (aged 10-29 years old) would like to migrate; finally, the 2009 Labour Force Survey found that unemployment rates augment by years of schooling. These findings are alarming and the consequence of several factors including political instability, the deteriorating economic situation, high inflation and scarce employment opportunities. Aujourd'hui, les territoires palestiniens occupent le troisième rang en termes de taux d’émigration parmi les pays du Moyen-Orient et de l'Afrique du Nord, après la Jordanie et l‘Iran. Les flux d'émigration ont particulièrement augmenté à la suite de l'invasion israélienne du Liban en 1982 et de la première guerre du Golfe (1990-91). Ce scénario s’est reproduit après la crise de septembre 2000, quand le seuil de pauvreté de la population a enregistré des niveaux jusque-là jamais atteints. Cette note a pour objectif d’analyser le phénomène de l’émigration des Palestiniens hautement qualifiés à partir des données provenant d’enquêtes évaluant le désir d’émigrer parmi les habitants de Cisjordanie et de la bande de Gaza. En 2007, une enquête menée auprès de salariés des secteurs de l’enseignement supérieur et de la santé a révélé que 31% d’entre eux aimeraient émigrer. Une autre enquête réalisée au cours de la même période souligne qu'un tiers des jeunes âgés entre 10 et 29 ans voudraient partir à étranger. En outre, en 2009, l‘enquête sur les forces de travail a constaté que le taux de chômage a tendance à augmenter avec le nombre d’années d'études. Ces découvertes alarmantes sont la conséquence de plusieurs facteurs: à l’instabilité politique permanente s’ajoute la détérioration de la situation économique, comme en témoignent la hausse du taux d‘inflation et la situation du marché de l’emploi qui ne cesse de se dégrader.

Palestine: The demographic and economic dimension of migration

Authors Mustafa KHAWAJA
Description
Political and economic instability, the uncertainty of the future of the region, together with the importance of extended family relations have all been major determinants in the size and patterns of migration from Palestinian Territory. This paper focuses on recent trends in emigration and return migration from and to Palestine by presenting the main results of the Migration Survey implemented by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics in 2010, the first survey of its kind. In addition, the desire to emigrate among Palestinians will be explored. A final section will then be dedicated to inward migration, i.e. foreign-born Palestinians living on the West Bank and in Gaza Strip. L'instabilité politique et économique, l'incertitude de l'avenir de la région ainsi que l'importance des relations familières ont été des facteurs déterminants de migration en partance des territoires palestiniens. Cette analyse se concentre sur les tendances enregistrées au cours de la période récente du phénomène migratoire, et plus précisément s’agissant de l'émigration et la migration de retour de et vers la Palestine, à l’appui des résultats tirés de l'Enquête sur la Migration conduite par le Bureau central palestinien des statistiques en 2010 - la première enquête du genre. En outre, les facteurs déterminants la décision et la volonté d'émigrer parmi les Palestiniens feront l’objet d’une analyse circonstanciée. Une dernière section sera consacrée aux étrangers résidant dans la Bande de Gaza.

Impact of Israeli Military Order No.1650 on Palestinians’ rights to legally reside in their own country

Authors Asem KHALIL
Description
A new Israeli military Order no. 1650 regarding the Prevention of Infiltration took effect on April 2010. Human-rights organizations expressed alarm at the new powers Israeli military forces will have in dealing with Palestinians who do not hold ‘lawful documents’ of stay in the occupied Palestinian territory. The objective of this paper is to investigate how this new order fits within a legal system Israel has set up in the West Bank and Gaza Strip through hundreds of military declarations and orders. Three aspects will be analyzed: first, the way residency status is regulated determining which residents are legal and which illegal; second, the regulation for border crossings and the movement of Palestinians within the occupied Palestinian territory and abroad; third, family unification of Palestinians in the occupied territory. These examples will show how this new order is part of an overarching policy that has been in crescendo since 1967: maximizing Israeli control of (Palestinian) land and minimizing the number of (Palestinian) people. The fact that this policy is targeting a specific national group and the fact that it is accompanied by a persistent settlement policy in the occupied Palestinian territories renders these policies, not only discriminatory, but also racist and colonial. Résumé Israël vient de mettre en œuvre en avril 2010 une nouvelle ordonnance militaire, n°1650, visant à prévenir les infiltrations. Les militants des droits de l’homme ont exprimé leur préoccupation face aux nouveaux pouvoirs ainsi octroyés aux formes militaires israéliennes dans leurs rapports avec les Palestiniens qui ne disposent pas de « documents réguliers » pour séjourner en territoires palestiniens occupés. L’objectif de cette note est d’étudier la manière dont cette nouvelle ordonnance s’insère dans un système juridique mis en place par Israël dans la bande de Gaza et la Cisjordanie par le biais de centaines de déclarations et ordonnances militaires. Trois aspects sont ici analysés : la gestion du statut de résident, et la distinction entre résidents légaux et illégaux ; la réglementation du passage des frontières et de la circulation des Palestiniens dans les territoires occupés et à l’étranger ; le regroupement familial des Palestiniens en territoires occupés. Ces exemples révèlent que cette ordonnance s’inscrit dans une politique perverse allant crescendo depuis 1967, et qui vise à maximiser le contrôle israélien sur la terre (palestinienne) et à minimiser le nombre d’habitants (palestiniens). Le fait que cette politique cible un groupe national spécifique et qu’elle soit accompagnée d’une politique persistante de peuplement en territoires occupés rend ces politiques non seulement discriminantes mais aussi racistes et colonialistes.

Labour Markets Performance and Migration Flows in Arab Mediterranean Countries: Determinants and Effects

Authors Philippe FARGUES, Iván MARTIN
Description
The main objective of this Study is to analyze the key labour market determinants of migration flows from selected Arab Mediterranean Countries (Algeria, Egypt, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Syria, Tunisia and the Occupied Palestinian Territories) and the impact of outward migration on the labour markets of Arab Mediterranean Countries (AMCs). This has been done mainly on the basis of the evidence and analysis produced by the two Thematic Background Papers and the 8 National Background Papers commissioned for the Study. In turn, the National Background Papers are deliberately based on national statistical data sources: this makes comparability less straightforward, but has the merit of using original data available at the local level, where they are collected and generated.

Dealing with Highly-Skilled Migration: The Case of the Palestinian Authority

Authors Asem KHALIL
Description
Since its establishment, in 1994, the Palestinian Authority has encouraged the ‘return’ of Palestinians to the West Bank and Gaza Strip. It has also enacted an investment promotion law in order to attract foreign capital. These two policies are motivated by the assumption that human and financial capital are both necessary for building Palestinian institutions, and preparing for statehood. Fifteen years later, the results though are slight. The few who have returned have had little impact, while many others, mostly highly-skilled, have emigrated. The Palestinian Authority law does not define highly-skilled migration. The lack of laws related to issues of migration is largely due to the PA’s lack of jurisdiction. Exit and entry of residents and foreign nationals from and to the occupied Palestinian territories, including those under Palestinian Authority control are still regulated and administered by Israel. This lack of regulation has long been accompanied by a lack of policies to deal with a phenomenon (namely the emigration of highly-skilled Palestinians), that is rightly considered dangerous for the Palestinian cause and for Palestinian unity generally; most importantly, it also has negative consequences on Palestinian society and economy (thus, hindering state-building efforts). Attracting highly-skilled immigrants and limiting the damage from the emigration of highly-skilled Palestinians cannot be managed by legal regulation alone. A decision of a highly-skilled individual to migrate is not only an economic decision. Political and security factors, coupled with the long Israeli occupation, have also decided the direction of highly-skilled migration flows. Résumé Depuis sa mise en place en 1994, l’Autorité palestinienne a encouragé le « retour » des Palestiniens en Cisjordanie et dans la bande de Gaza. Elle a également adopté une loi de promotion des investissements visant à attirer le capital étranger. Ces deux politiques sont basées sur l’idée selon laquelle le capital tant humain que financier est nécessaire à l’établissement des institutions palestiniennes et à l’émergence de l’Etat. Quinze ans plus tard, les résultats sont minces. Les quelques retours ont eu peu d’impact, tandis que beaucoup d’autres Palestiniens, pour la plupart hautement qualifiés, ont émigré. La législation de l’Autorité palestinienne ne définit pas la migration hautement qualifiée. Le manque de lois régissant les questions migratoires est largement dû au manque de compétence. La sortie des résidents et des étrangers des territoires occupés, y compris de ceux sous contrôle de l’Autorité palestinienne, ainsi que le retour, sont toujours régis et administrés par Israël. Le manque de régulation a longtemps été accompagné d’un manque de politiques pour gérer un phénomène (l’émigration des Palestiniens hautement qualifiés) considéré à juste titre comme dangereux pour la cause palestinienne et plus généralement pour l’unité palestinienne ; ce phénomène a avant tout des conséquences négatives sur la société et l’économie palestiniennes (et donc sur les efforts de construction étatique). L’objectif d’attirer les immigrés hautement qualifiés et de limiter les dommages causés par l’émigration hautement qualifiée ne peut être atteint par la seule législation. Pour un individu hautement qualifié, la décision de partir n’est pas seulement une décision économique. Les facteurs politiques et sécuritaires, liés à la longue occupation israélienne, ont également orienté les flux de migration hautement qualifiée.

Filling the Gap? A Survey of Palestinian Case Law on Migration

Authors Asem KHALIL
Description
Since its establishment in 1994, the Palestinian Authority has shown great interest in changing the Palestinian legal system through direct legislative intervention, despite its limited territorial, functional and personal jurisdiction. Yet for migration issues, the legislative intervention has been the exception rather than the rule. Such legislative stagnation was accompanied by lack of policies for migration issues in general. The lack of such legislative intervention as much as the absence of clear policies in migration issues is the ‘gap’ the title of this paper refers to. This paper questions the role of Palestinian courts in filling the gap, whether by making new laws or even by contributing to the formulation of new policies. Two cases in particular will be discussed: the status of UNRWA and the rights it has inside refugee camps; and the way Palestinian courts dealt with foreign courts’ decisions, determining indirectly what is national. An analysis of a research sample on migration-related cases shows clearly that the Palestinian judiciary do not seem to be playing (or to be willing to play) the role of rule- or policy-maker in migration issues. This gap is not necessarily disturbing as there is no legal vacuum. Palestinian judges always find their way through the existing laws inherited from previous regimes, still in force in the West Bank and the Gaza Strip. The decisions analyzed in the research sample, though reduced numerically, are rich in meanings and indicators. They reflect the changes the Palestinian Authority had introduced to the legal system of the West Bank and the Gaza Strip and demonstrate how Palestinians are moving towards an understanding of their identity that evolve around a territorial state-like entity. Résumé Depuis sa mise en place en 1994, l’Autorité palestinienne a montré un grand intérêt à modifier le système juridique palestinien à travers une intervention législative directe, en dépit d’une compétence territoriale, fonctionnelle et personnelle limitée. Cependant, en matière migratoire, l’intervention législative a été l’exception plutôt que la règle. Cette stagnation législative s’est accompagnée d’un manque de politiques sur les questions migratoires en général, d’où le titre de ce papier et l’utilisation du terme «gap». Cet article examine le rôle des cours palestiniennes pour combler ce vide, soit en créant de nouvelles lois soit en contribuant à la formulation de nouvelles politiques. Deux thèmes sont traités en particulier: le statut de l’UNRWA et son rôle dans les camps de réfugiés; la manière dont les cours palestiniennes abordent les décisions judiciaires étrangères, déterminant indirectement ce qui peut être considéré comme national. Une analyse de la jurisprudence en matière de migration révèle clairement que les tribunaux palestiniens ne semblent pas (ou ne veulent pas) jouer un rôle de législateur ou de décideur concernant les questions migratoires, ce qui n’est pas nécessairement gênant puisqu’ il n’y a pas de vide juridique. Les juges palestiniens trouvent toujours leur voie à travers les lois existantes héritées des régimes précédents et toujours en vigueur dans la Bande de Gaza et en Cisjordanie. Les décisions analysées dans cette recherche, bien que peu nombreuses, sont riches de sens et d’information. Elles reflètent les changements que l’Autorité palestinienne a introduits dans le système juridique de la Bande de Gaza et la Cisjordanie et montrent la manière dont les Palestiniens s’acheminent vers une définition de leur identité qui évolue autour d’une entité territoriale quasi-étatique.

Irregular Migration, Palestinian Case: Demographic and socioeconomic perspectives

Authors Ismail LUBBAD
Description
In this paper, particular attention is given to Palestinian refugees since they comprise over half of the world-wide Palestinian population. Demographic and economic data is used to study the impact of refugees on Palestinian society and the Palestinian economy. The paper has four main sections: along with a brief review of the literature, the first section provides definitions of irregular migration and Palestinian refugees. The second section offers a detailed look at demographics, while the third section examines socioeconomic characteristics. Both the second and third sections offer comparisons between refugees and non-refugees in the occupied Palestinian territories (oPt). A conclusion is given in the fourth and final section. The data shows a variance in socioeconomic characteristics between Palestinian refugees and non-refugees living in the oPt. Both refugees and non-refuges live in similar social and economic settings, thereby strengthening solidarity amongst Palestinians. The article concludes by noting that the increasing numbers of young Palestinians in the oPt along with a trend of local de-development and a lack of economic opportunities will drive more Palestinians to emigrate. For Palestinian refugees, this will give rise to a second, or even third, displacement.

The Legal Dimension of Migration: The Palestinian Case

Authors Asem KHALIL
Description
Abstract In this report I consider Israeli policies aimed at reducing the number of Palestinians in the areas under its control. I then deal with the rights and freedoms of Palestinian refugees in host countries. I show how Palestinian refugees are dealt with in host countries as a security issue, with consequently limited rights and freedoms, an extra burden on their already fragile situation. I urge for a more stable legal status for Palestinian refugees. I then deal with the special challenge that the Gaza Strip poses for the international community. I argue that UNRWA is being pushed into a risky though perhaps necessary field, namely the protection of refugees and other fragile categories of civilians. Finally, I present an update of Palestinian Authority legislative enactments notwithstanding the stagnation in the Palestinian constitutional system that followed the 2007 Hamas coup in Gaza. Résumé Cet article aborde plusieurs points. Il se penche sur les politiques israéliennes visant à créer des faits accomplis en réduisant le nombre de Palestiniens dans les zones sous contrôle israélien. Il évalue l’état des droits et des libertés dont bénéficient les réfugiés palestiniens dans leurs pays d’accueil. Il montre que les réfugiés palestiniens sont abordés dans les pays hôtes comme un problème sécuritaire, entraînant une réduction des droits et des libertés et aggravant leur situation déjà fragile. L’article recommande un statut juridique plus stable pour les réfugiés palestiniens. La bande de Gaza représente un défi particulier pour la communauté internationale. L’UNRWA est entraînée sur un terrain risqué, et pour cette raison utile, celui de la protection des réfugiés et d’autres catégories de civils vulnérables. Enfin, l’article présente une actualisation de l’activité législative de l’Autorité palestinienne en dépit de la stagnation du système constitutionnel palestinien qui a suivi la prise de contrôle du Hamas à Gaza en 2007.

The Vicious Cycle of Palestinian Workers in Israeli Settlements

Authors Asem KHALIL
Description
This paper is interested in presenting the status of rights of Palestinians working in Israeli settlements. Available reports suggest that these are subjected to discrimination, exploitation and human-rights violations both in terms of employment conditions and safety measures. In October 2007, the Israeli High Court ruled unanimously that Israeli labor laws applied equally to Israeli employers and their Palestinian West Bank workers. The decision signs a breakthrough for Palestinian workers, but raises questions with regards to the ruling’s enforcement and implications, given that Israeli settlements are illegal under international law. This paper argues that granting equal rights without discrimination based on nationality is an obligation for all states. Accordingly, it is inconceivable that we re-interpret international humanitarian law so as to allow the discrimination of local populations and the application of dual legal systems. Such a reinterpretation would lead to the system that was historically applied in several countries, i.e. “colonization,” and/or “apartheid,” and to the system that is currently applied in Israeli settlements.

Gender and Migration in Palestine

Authors Asem KHALIL
Description
This paper is concerned with legal rules and institutions in Palestine directly or indirectly affecting migrant women. In particular, this paper sheds light on family reunification, personal status, and nationality laws. Despite the Palestinian Authority’s apparent commitment to rejecting sex discrimination and in combating violence directed against women, there are still social and legal obstacles that hinder full equality. In fact, legal rules and institutions have not always been – and, indeed, are still not – gender-neutral. It is not evident if and how such legal rules and institutions hinder or encourage female migration. It is nonetheless fair to say that this legal context is an important factor in determining women’s decisions to emigrate from, and may affect women’s willingness to immigrate to, Palestine. This is particularly true given that such legal provisions are accompanied by social norms that are often discriminatory towards women. The Palestinian Authority’s lack of sovereign control over borders in the occupied Palestinian territory as much as its population register hinders the adoption of rules, and the implementation of policies, related to migration, including those that target female migrants. Cet article porte sur les règles et institutions, en Palestine, qui affectent directement ou indirectement les femmes migrantes. Il met particulièrement en lumière le cadre juridique régissant le regroupement familial, le statut personnel et la nationalité. En dépit d’un engagement apparent de l’Autorité palestinienne à l’encontre de toute discrimination fondée sur le sexe et pour combattre la violence faite aux femmes, des obstacles sociaux et juridiques empêchent toujours une pleine égalité. En réalité, les règles et institutions ne sont toujours pas neutres en matière de genre, mais il n’est pas évident d’en conclure qu’elles entravent ou encouragent la migration féminine. Il paraît néanmoins juste de penser qu’un tel contexte est un facteur déterminant dans les décisions des femmes d’émigrer de la Palestine, ou de venir immigrer en Palestine. Ceci est particulièrement vrai du fait que ces règles s’accompagnent de normes sociales qui sont souvent discriminantes à l’égard des femmes. Enfin, le manque de contrôle souverain de l’Autorité palestinienne sur les frontières du territoire palestinien occupé ainsi que sur l’enregistrement de sa population freinent l’adoption de règles et l’application de politiques concernant la migration, y compris celles qui viseraient les femmes en particulier.
