The role of Community Based Organizations in preparing and responding to crisis in Lebanon, a qualitative study

This study explores the role of community-based organizations in preparing for and responding to crisis in Lebanon. While there has been considerable work conducted on preparedness, responsiveness and recovery to crisis in Lebanon, there has been little work so far that focuses on measuring and assessing the capacities, expertise, strengths and weaknesses of local CBOS in preparing and responding to crises.

Field Diagnosis: Prostitution and Trafficking in Women in the Eastern Suburbs of Beirut

Lebanon provides a refuge for many women and teenagers driven away from neighbouring countries by wars and conflicts, as well as some who have come from other countries seeking better economic conditions. Trafficking and prostitution are exacerbated in a context of unemployment and insecurity, where the State is often absent.

Health Status and Health Needs of Older Refugees from Syria in Lebanon

This study sought to characterize the physical and emotional conditions, dietary habits, coping practices, and living conditions of this elderly population arriving in Lebanon between March 2011 and March 2013. A systematic selection of 210 older refugees from Syria was drawn from a listing of 1800 refugees over age 60 receiving assistance from the Caritas Lebanon Migrant Center (CLMC) or the Palestinian Women’s Humanitarian Organization (PALWHO).

Reconfiguring Relief Mechanisms: The Syrian Refugee Crisis in Lebanon

This paper highlights the specificity of the refugee crisis in the unstable Lebanese landscape and calls for the reconfiguring of current relief mechanisms by enabling decentralized local authorities to lead the process. Crisis Management Teams (CMTs), part of Mohafazat councils, will be responsible of collaborating with national and international agencies, planning and monitoring relief projects.

Education of Syrian Refugee Children: Managing the Crisis in Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan

This scoping study is intended to contribute to the ongoing policy discussions among governments, donors, and United Nations agencies about the education of Syrian refugees in Lebanon, Turkey, and Jordan (the three countries with the largest populations of Syrian refugees), on
four topics:
 
• Access: How can refugee children access education?
• Management: How will refugee education be planned, managed, and supported?

Images MENA: A study by A Qualitative Study on War, Masculinities, and Gender Relations with Lebanese and Syrian Refugee Men and Women

Only a handful of studies in Lebanon have shed light on the changing gendered dynamics within the refugee families by comparing gender roles, expectations, and practices before and after displacement (as result of armed conflict). And even when such research is carried out, it has seldom examined how changing roles and identities related to masculinities affect gender relations.

Exploring the Demand for Prostitution: What Male Buyers Say about their Motives, Practices and Perceptions

The following study is a first attempt to explore and better understand the demand side in Lebanon where little has been written on this critical component of the prostitution industry. Studies on male buyers of sexual acts are not only rare, but when they exist, they often deal with the health side of the subject (e.g., the spreading of HIV/AIDS, use of condom, use of drugs).
