Only a handful of studies in Lebanon have shed light on the changing gendered dynamics within the refugee families by comparing gender roles, expectations, and practices before and after displacement (as result of armed conflict). And even when such research is carried out, it has seldom examined how changing roles and identities related to masculinities affect gender relations. Thus, the results and analysis of this study focus on gaining a new understanding of masculinities in this conflict-affected setting, with the goal of improving responses and services for women and men affected by the conflict.
