Legal and Policy Framework of Migration Governance

This report aims to provide a contextual understanding of migration governance in the Lebanese context, as well as its implications for refugees and migrants. Towards this end, this report provides an overview of the legal and policy framework in Lebanon, notably within the context of the Syrian refugee crisis erupting in 2011. Moreover, the report critically evaluates the legal statuses – if any – pertaining to ‘asylum seekers’, ‘refugees’, and ‘migrants’ on the one hand, and the role of state and non-state actors on the other.

Transport and Connectivity to Global Value Chains: Illustrations from the Arab Region

It assesses whether the Arab region meets the necessary requirements of infrastructure, logistics and trade facilitation to be able to participate meaningfully in GVCs.

Arab Region Process in Sustainable Energy: Global Tracking Framework Regional Report

The Arab region lacks sustainable natural resource management, mostly in the areas of energy efficiency and its overwhelming reliance on fossil fuels for virtually all its energy needs. War, political instability, and consequent displacement and migration, particularly in low- and lower-middle-income countries, further accelerate pressure on urban living space and resources. Sustainable-energy development is not a priority that is more relevant to any one Arab country rather than another, nor a choice between high growth and low growth.

Transport and Connectivity to Global Value Chains: Illustrations from the Arab Region

This report explores the impact of transport infrastructure and services availability and efficiency on Global Value Chains connectivity. It also assesses whether the Arab region meets the necessary requirements of infrastructure, logistics, and trade facilitation, to be able to participate meaningfully in Global Value Chains.

The Neglected Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon and the Syrian Refugee Crisis

Based on field study in Lebanon Spring 2016, this paper focuses on the consequences of the refugee crisis for the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. 455.000 Palestinians are registered by UNWRA, the UN agency established to take care of Palestinian refugees in the Middle East. App. 250.000 are living in the Palestinian camps while

Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon: ANERA Reports on the ground in the Middle East

The list of challenges Palestinian refugee families living in Lebanon face is long and overwhelming. They live in overcrowded camps and have to deal with discrimination, isolation and social exclusion. The refugees often refer to themselves as “forgotten people” and feel they are living in a hostile environment where their basic human rights are not represented or protected. Caught in the middle of an unsettled political conflict beyond their control, they manage to survive with limited resources and a restricted legal, economic and social system.
 

Widening Access to Quality Education for Syrian Refugees: The Role of Private and NGO Sectors in Lebanon

As the Syrian crisis enters the fourth year, there is a timely need to reflect on the wider implications on Lebanon. The influx of over a million and half Syrian refugees has brought a total of 400,000 school-age refugees to Lebanon. This dramatic demographic shift poses a formidable challenge to an education system suited to deliver education to a national student population of just over 900,000.

Local Politics and the Syrian Refugee Crisis: Exploring Responses in Turkey, Lebanon, and Jordan

Refugee protection is inherently political. While international law and values inevitably influence governments’ decisions about how to respond to refugees, so too do power and interests. Host and donor states’ commitment to assist, protect and provide solutions for refugees are all shaped by whether and to what extent they perceive refugees to be a burden or a benefit in relation to security and development outcomes, for example.

Syrian Refugees in Lebanon between Resilience and Vulnerability

The goal of this study is to measure the impact of the legal status policy on refugee vulnerability and to assess the extent of refugee resilience. We have measured refugee perception of security, mobility, access to services, and social integration in Lebanon. Moreover, we have measured the Lebanese host community’s perception of security and level of tolerance towards refugees in economic and social spheres.
