Data before are from United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), Statistics Database, Statistical Yearbook and data files, complemented by statistics on Palestinian refugees under the mandate of the UNRWA as published on its website. "Crimes of Peace is a valuable read for anyone interested in the very concept of Europe and of the rule of law.
