Departing from personal experiences, the authors are exploring the concepts and practices related to the *common. How can a heightened attention to the common, grounded and growing yet also contested in the refugee camps, shift the discourse of Palestinian refugeehood and the way the right of return is imagined and articulated?

*The Collective Dictionary is 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. The Collective Dictionary is both the reference and conceptual framework for all Campus in Camps projects and interventions.
