The article argues for an internationally harmonized approach to temporary protection for Palestinian refugees and stateless persons. Temporary protection offers protection rights to this huge population of refugees that they lack in any of the main regions in which they have sought refuge. The article establishes the legal framework for temporary protection in the particular historical, legal and political context of the Palestinian refugee situation. It argues for the urgency of a harmonized rights-based protection regime.
