Map of Collective Actions in Lebanon

The collective action mapping developed by Lebanon Support, in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme, tracks mobilisations across Lebanon by groups of people whose goal is to achieve a common objective.
  • The map is continuously updated.
  • Each mapped collective action is based on a typology devised by Lebanon Support.
  • The objective of the map is to explore collective actions by providing accurate data and relevant information on mobilisations happening on the territory.
Tips for using our map:
  • To get the most out of our map, make sure to read the map legend, and our typology below.
  • To view a collective action that took place in a specific location, first, find the location on the map by clicking on the relevant cluster. Then, you can click on the individual marker to explore the collective action.
  • If more than one collective action took place in the exact same location, you can click on the individual marker, and use the arrows and numbers at the bottom of the pop up box to explore the various collective actions mapped in this location.
  • Collective Actions with no identified location (such as online campaigns) will be mapped in the capital, Beirut.
  • Our filters above can help you find collective actions by location, actor, mode of action, objective, grievance, date, and more. At least one filter must be used for a search.

Individual collective action marker
Individual collective actions are marked at their location. Some collective actions occur over a number of days and may have a prolonged time frame. This is notably relevant for strikes, sit-ins, and online campaigns.
Click on the individual marker to see a pop-up box giving a brief summary of the collective action, with its type. For a longer description of the event, click on the event’s title at the top of the description box.
Clustering

A cluster is a grouping of collective action markers. Cluster marker colors indicate the number of collective action grouped within that cluster.

If more than one collective action took place in the exact same location, you can click on the individual marker, and use the arrows and numbers at the bottom of the pop up box to explore the many collective actions mapped in this location.

The color of the cluster changes based on the average of maximum and minimum of all collective actions clusters shown on the map.
