Johnson Refugee Repatriation, Resettlement and Compensation Plan (1962)

A plan to resolve the United Nations Conciliation Commission for Palestine (CCP), and published on 3 October 1962. Aiming at the implementation of Paragraph 11 of UNGA Resolution 194, the plan called for refugees to be offered either repatriation or resettlement and compensation. An organization headed by a CCP-appointed Administrator would oversee a survey in which refugees would indicate their preference, followed by consultation with Israel and the Arab countries to determine feasible methods to implement both options. The organization would then assist in implementation with the help of relevant governments. Administrative costs would be funded by the UN, while compensation and other expenses would be funded by voluntary contributions by governments and individuals.
