The Collective Dictionary was the conceptual reference for the projects and interventions of the Campus in Camps program. This series of publications, containing definitions of concepts, proposed terms fundamental to understanding the contemporary condition of Palestinian refugee camps, through words resulting from an active dialogue with the camp community. Written reflections on personal experiences, interviews, excursions, and photographic surveys provided the starting point for the formulation of more structured thoughts.
