Promoting an enabling environment for the well-being of refugees, migrants and Host communities in Lebanon
“Refugees = Partners” is organizing a series of three workshops that aim to address the legal and structural challenges that permit and/or hinder refugees’ access to legal status in Lebanon through the assessment of the impact of recent developments on vulnerable communities, mainly Syrian refugees, and some key innovative approaches to assist in creating an inclusive socio-economic framework.
The workshop offers an opportunity to engage in substantive discussions on serious issues facing Syrian refugees, thus, assist in guiding tangible recommendations and more effective strategies to push for policy change.
- Structural challenges: The impact of limited legal status on Syrian refugees’ access to livelihood and the labor market.
- Options to transform de jure and de facto institutions towards more human protection and social justice.
- Strategies and policies that could expand economic opportunities to benefit both Lebanese and refugees.
