Made by Al Am’ari located east of Ramallah city in al-Bireh municipality, one of the smallest refugee camps in the West Bank. Before the first intifada, many refugees living in the camp were able to freely move to surrounding villages and cities. However, the construction of the West Bank Barrier, expansion of Ramallah and rising property prices meant that movement has become dicult for most residents. In addition to contributing to overcrowding and poor living conditions, the growing population continues to pose a challenge for service provision and the existing infrastructure in the camp. One of the major issues reported by residents of Am’ari is the rising unemployment rate especially among educated youth. This has increased substantially in recent years, partly due to the decrease in the number of Israeli work permits issued to camp residents. Unemployment rates remain a challenge inside all camps.
