#OccupyBeirut: Re-Imagining the City Since the October 2019 Protests - #احتلوا_بيروت: إعادة تخيّل المدينة منذ احتجاجات تشرين الأول / أكتوبر ٢٠١٩

The mobilisation cycle that started in Lebanon as of the 17th of October 2019 witnessed a widening of the geographies of protests: from squares, highways, main roads intersections, commercial banks, politician’s houses, government buildings, and police stations. In this infographic, we focus on the occupation by protestors of emblematic spaces, notably in the capital, Beirut. Abandoned and previously inaccessible buildings, in addition to privatised coasts, have been continuously reclaimed as public spaces.

What mobilises Lebanon? Focus on socio-economic demands - ما الذي يحرّك لبنان؟ إضاءة على المطالب الاقتصادية والاجتماعية

Protests have been ongoing in Lebanon since October 17 2019, in an unprecedented geographic spread, largely motivated by demands to access socio-economic rights, which are part and parcel of human rights. This infographic visualises these demands, shedding light on the role of civil society actors in mobilising on these issues throughout the years, and in creating and framing rights-based demands and discourses. 

What Mobilises Lebanon? A Look Into Collective Actions from 2017 leading up to October 2019 - ما الذي يحرّك لبنان؟ نظرة على التحركات الاجتماعية من ٢٠١٧ حتّى تشرين الأول ٢٠١٩

On 17 October 2019, numerous protests have taken place across the country, all directly linked to access to socio-economic rights, corruption, and policy grievances. While all these demands may notably be driven by years of neglect of the peripheries, clientelism and patronage, and austerity, they ultimately underline a crisis of political legitimacy and trust, and ought to be read in the context of an increasingly constrained democratic and civic space.

2015-2018: Four Years in Review - Mapping of Conflict Incidents in Lebanon

The Geo-located map of conflicts, part of the Conflict Analysis Project, developed by Lebanon Support, in partnership with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) tracks incidents, mobilisations and conflicts between individuals/groups/communities happening across Lebanon. This visual provides an overview of the conflicts incidents mapped between 2015 and 2018 focusing on their primary and secondary classifications, locations, and categories.
