“The Collective Dictionary is both the reference and conceptual framework for all Campus in Camps projects and interventions in form of a series of publications containing definitions of concepts. The terms proposed are those considered fundamental for the understanding of the contemporary condition of Palestinian refugee camps. These words have emerged as a result of actions and active dialogs with the camp community. Written reflections on personal experiences, interviews, excursions and photographic investigations constitute the starting point for the formulation of more structured thoughts.”

Here below the booklets to which I participated and contributed.
