Articles look beyond the current events to what most international observers regard as the root causes of conflict and displacement in the Middle East. The protracted nature of the displacement, the complexity of the means used to dispossess Palestinians and the apparent double standards of the international community do indeed make this a case apart.  Palestine and Deplacement [ES].pdf  Palestine and Displacement [EN].pdf  Palestine and Displacement [HE].pdf   For the Arabic version visit:  Palestinian Deplacement [AR].html

Article: Questioning the concept of ‘Place’ / Cuestionar el concepto del ‘Lugar’ (only in Spanish)

Keywords: Western Europe, Spain, Spanish, sex, prostitution, gender, report, human rights, migrants, resource for all, print  Laura M ª Agustín uses the case of migration of women to work in the sex industry to challenge an always positive concept of 'place'. It argues that there is a discontinuity between the images essential to the NGOs, government officials and other workers that depict sex workers as stripped of their house and subjected to traumatic experiences as trafficked persons, on the one hand and the experiences, expectations and with the Migrants own narrative, on the other. Migrant sex workers are not always forcibly displaced, and when they do, their paths may have later, and often have very positive outcomes as the life of any person. Agustín offers a description of the environments in which they live, these migrant women and transsexuals.  Questioning the concept of place [ES].pdf
