Hosting over 50,000 inhabitants and governed by competing militias, 'ayn al-hilwe in the south of lebanon is one of the most contested refugee camps in the middle east. It is known as the 'capital of the palestinian diaspora' and has endured a long history of internal power struggles and external influence and intervention. Based on extensive ethnographic research in the camp - focused on the actors who have shaped its modern political trajectory – this book looks at the role of exile leaderships, camp-based militia commanders and shape-shifting networks of patronage in the political landscape of the palestinian movement in lebanon.
