Title: The Impact of Refugees on Urban Planning in Local Palestinian Communities.

Abstract: Urban planning is known as long term planning for cities to cope with the expansion of cities and population growth, however, urban planning in major Palestinian cities is facing an obstacle since some of them are suffering from the absence of a political solution to the displacement of the Palestinian refugees and to the refugee camps. The lecture´s objective is to highlight the measurement of indicators regarding the impact of migration on local urban planning such as infrastructure, land use, architecture of the cities, long term planning, land ownership etc.  The lecture will use the time series methodology to explain the relationship between each planning indicator and the growth of migration community. The real examples will be presented from different Palestinian Cities such as Nablus, Ramallah and their respective refugee camps. The lecture will highlight the conclusion and evaluation of multidimensional impact of refugees on the future of growing cities under uncertain socioeconomic and political conditions in Palestine.
