Access to Healthcare for Syrian Refugees. The Impact of Fragmented Service Provision on Syrians’ Daily Lives

This report aims to explore the fragmented organisation of healthcare services in Lebanon, for Syrian refugees. Although it is not an assessment of the Lebanese healthcare system, this report does nevertheless reflect on the challenges and underlying dynamics of the current Lebanese system, which are reproduced in the healthcare provision for Syrian refugees.

Working Paper No. 481: Feminist Knowledge and Human Security: Bridging Rifts Through the Epistemology of Care

This essay proposes to re-orient feminist debates on epistemology towards the care-security nexus as a pathway that can plausibly provide an integral understanding of a human-centred and eco-minded security. Seeing ‘gender’ in binary terms tends to produce an understanding of ‘care’ as ‘female’ and ‘security’ as ‘male’. Care, when free from the constraints of gender as a binary construct, can play an important role in revealing the depth of ethical-political concerns and help expand the understanding of security.

بين "عرسال التي تحتضتن الارهاب" و "عرسال خط احمر" عرسال مطوقة من جميع الجهات

قبل عام 2011، كانت عرسال كالمناطق الأخرى المهمشة لا تصلها التنمية ولا المشاريع الحكومية ولا الخدمات العامة و بالكاد يسمع عنها. فلا صحف تكتب عنها ولا  قنوات تهتم بنقل أخبارها ومشاكلها، وفجأة أصبحت عرسال هي الخبر، احتلت العناوين الرئيسية في الصحف وبات اسمها يتردد يوميا في نشرات الأخبار و تصريحات السياسيين والحلقات الحوارية.

UNHCR, coordinating the operations in the North along side with the HRC (High Relief Commission) and DRC as its main implementing partner, requested from DRC to conduct a first rapid assessment in the Bekaa with the following objectives: a) To identify existing areas of displacement in the Bekaa, where displaced Syrians might have fled since the beginning of the crisis, b) To assess the capacities of these areas (or others) to host additional displaced Syrians, in the hypothesis of a larger influx.

Needs Assessment of Syrian Refugees with Disabilities in Central and West Bekaa, Lebanon

The current crisis in Syria has been going on for well over a year and the situation remains volatile and is in fact worsening over time. This is highlighted by recent descriptions of the conflict as an actual civil war, the recent assassinations of the Minister of Defence and other top ranking officials and the increased level of violence of the conflict in general terms. These factors suggest it is highly unlikely that the security situation in Syria will be improving enough in the near future as to allow the safe return of the refugees and displaced persons to their homes.
