Making the Case for Universal Social Protection in Lebanon | January, 2022-نحو حماية اجتماعية شاملة في لبنان | كانون الثاني/يناير، ٢٠٢٢

As Lebanon enters its third year of multilayered crises, including socio-economic collapse, the majority of the population is pushed into pauperism and vulnerability amidst an absence of universal social security and protection.

Indeed, prior to the crisis, at least one third of the workforce was already excluded from any form of social protection.

Setting the Agenda towards Gender Equity

The 2018 parliamentary elections in Lebanon witnessed the largest participation of women in the country’s history with 86 out 113 female candidates making it on the final electoral lists (Baturni and Halinan 2018, 1-3). Yet, out of the 128 elected candidates, only 6 were women (The Daily Star 2018). More recently, since the October 2019 protests, women have been at the forefront of mobilisations, organising sit-ins, marches, demonstrations, and chanting feminist slogans.
