Actors and raids in conflicts of social discrimination

Period Covered: 
July, 2014 to May, 2015

This visual looks into the actors and raids in incidents mapped and classified as social discrimination on our conflict mapping. Since our classifications includes social discrimination and social solidarity acts, the actors visualisation shows who is behind each behind social discrimination and social solidarity acts, and reflects the actions of small grassroots collectives, such as "Committee for The Fight Against Sectarianism and Racism", in mobilising against social discrimination. These acts could involve or target any minority, but based on the types of locations targeted by raids, it is clear that Syrian refugees are the main victims of social discrimination reported in the media and mapped. Raids can be committed by Lebanese Armed Forces, Internal Security Forces, or even local authorities, or armed militants.
