UN Spends 4 Times More on Palestinian Refugees Per Person


A Palestinian refugee receives a budget four times larger than a Syrian, Iraqi or African refugee, according to a study by the Abba Eban Institute of International Diplomacy at the Interdisciplinary Center in Herzliya, reports Itamar Eichner for Ynet News.

The UN is currently addressing the largest refugee crisis in history involving 68 million people worldwide.
In 2016, UNRWA, which provides assistance only for Palestinian refugees, spent $246 for each of the 5.3 million Palestinians it defines as refugees, while UNHCR, which deals with all other refugees, spent $58 per refugee.
Former Israeli UN Ambassador Ron Prosor, who heads the Abba Eban Institute, suggests improving the treatment of refugees around the world by merging UNRWA into the UNHCR.
