This report is based on answers to two surveys carried out in Lebanon in 2018 as part of a project to understand how refugees and humanitarian staff perceive the impact of the reforms enshrined in the Grand Bargain. The first survey was conducted face-to-face with 895 Syrian and Palestinian refugees across all eight governorates of Lebanon. The second included 290 staff members of national and international aid agencies, with data collected using an online survey tool.

In May 2014 the Lebanese authorities put in place new requirements for Palestinian refugees from Syria trying to enter Lebanon. Many of the conditions are very difficult to meet and have the effect of denying people fleeing conflict the possibility of seeking safety in Lebanon. This briefing details the restrictions facing Palestinian refugees from Syria who try to enter or stay in Lebanon, as far as these are known. It describes some of the implications for refugees and includes the accounts of several Palestinian refugees from Syria who have been directly affected.
This report is the result of a joint effort by UNDP and UN-HABITAT to gain a better understanding of the various dynamics governing access to basic urban services in the Adjacent Areas of Palestine Refugee Camps in Lebanon.
The Palestinian Student Guide in the Lebanese Educational Institutions is considered as an important tool that answers the needs of the Palestinian students related to the education system in Lebanon. It also includes the various academic administrative requirements which any Palestinian may need for enrollment in the schools, universities and institutes of Lebanon.
This joint programme between UNDP and UN Habitat aims at working at the national and local levels to improve dwellers' access to basic urban services in Palestinian Gatherings in Lebanon with particular attention to the Adjacent Areas of Palestinian Refugee Camps.
Executive summary of a survey conducted by UNICEF. Objectives of the study: - To assess the magnitude of the problem of violence at home, in schools, in institutions and in the neighborhood of camp environment. - To explore violence perpetrated in the domestic sphere which targets women and children and exists as a powerful tool of oppression. - To profile attitudes and practices of violence among target population. - To explore relationship between violence and a set of socioeconomic and demographic correlates.
The project aimed at mapping living conditions among Palestinian refugees living in camps in Lebanon or in areas locally called "gatherings". The Palestinian Authority wanted such information in order to obtain a more complete picture of the conditions under which the refugees were living in the various host countries in the Middle East. The Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics (PCBS) in Damascus was Fafo's partner on the project and conducted the interviews in the field. The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) financed the project.
This report is the result of an assessment undertaken by the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) from March 28. to June 27, 2005 in Lebanon. The assessment was supported financially by the European Commission’s Humanitarian Aid department (ECHO). The assessment assessed humanitarian and protection needs of Palestinian refugees living in gatherings (non-UNRWA camps) in Lebanon. 56 potential gatherings were visited during the mission, and 17 of these were assessed to fall outside the set criteria, leaving 39 gatherings for further studies.
This study is designed to explore distinguishing features of Palestinians not registered with UNRWA in terms of their general living conditions, with a focus on access to basic services, and their aspirations. The exploratory nature of the study precludes detailed information but focuses on the vulnerabilities and distinguishing features of the study population. Conclusions drawn from the study are based on a synthesis of findings from statistical and qualitative information.
