Social Protection in Lebanon Excludes Palestinian Refugees
The laws and regulations relevant to social protection are systemically exclusionary and fail to protect a vast majority of the population. As access to national social security schemes is linked to formal labour, Palestine refugees in Lebanon encounter legislative and practical barriers in obtaining work contracts and accessing social security. Barriers in accessing formal labour and hence social insurance have transformed Palestine refugees into long-term recipients of humanitarian assistance, and created a protracted situation of chronic vulnerability.
