dc.description.abstract Jordan’s population is divided between Jordanians and Palestinians, it is a nation were two people who share very similar culture, norms, and beliefs live together. However, the issue of identity emerges on the surface in a lot of cases, family names make it clear who is Palestinian and who is Jordanian and in some instances, people love to separate. In other cases, however, both live happily together and some Palestinians believe Jordan is their first home. The topic of this thesis was motivated after living my whole life in Jordan as a Palestinian and having the issue of identity discussed almost daily. I wanted to know if all Palestinians feel like I do, belonging to two different identities if this is possible, or belonging to one identity and which identity would that be. Thus, a survey was distributed to a number of Palestinians holding the Jordanian citizenship living in either urban areas or rural refugee camps to study whether there is a difference in attachment levels to the Palestinian identity and whether the living circumstances effect this attachment. en_US
