Reception Policies, Practices, and Responses

This report provides a contextual analysis of the provision of reception to asylum seekers in Lebanon, with a particular focus on the developments of the period spanning 2011 to 2019. Research findings highlight the absence of a comprehensive asylum reception regime, in favour of a set of formal and informal ad-hoc policies and decisions taken from 2014 onwards, with the specific aim of dissuading populations of concerns from settling in the country.

Refugee Protection

This report provides a contextual analysis of the provision of refugee protection in Lebanon. It highlights the absence of a comprehensive refugee protection legal framework, in favor of a  set of formal and informal ad hoc policies, which are limited in scope and inclusivity. While the Lebanese polity is a signatory of international conventions calling for non-discriminatory protection, and non-refoulement, it falls short in practice with direct and indirect measures, breaching those very principles.
