Localising migration governance in the Middle East region. Towards human rights based policies and interventions

This policy brief builds on Lebanon Support’s transformative and interdisciplinary research on migration, mobility, and circulation in the region. It aims to build on comparative contextual research findings to propose targeted recommendations from a bottom-up perspective, including the perspective of grassroot organisations, practitioners, and those who are affected by migration policies: refugees themselves. It also endeavours to amplify local, national, and regional voices in global discussions on migration, to inform more humane and human rights based policy-making.

Syrian Refugees' Livelihoods. The Impact of Progressively Constrained Legislations and Increased Informality on Syrians’ Daily Lives.

This report examines both the historical development and current situation of Syrians working in Lebanon through the analysis of policies established and implemented by the Lebanese government. While the report is not an assessment of these policies, it nevertheless reflects on its impact on Syrians’ working conditions and livelihoods. In this vein, this report notably focuses on emerging dynamics of increased informality, exploitation, and dependence.

بين "عرسال التي تحتضتن الارهاب" و "عرسال خط احمر" عرسال مطوقة من جميع الجهات

قبل عام 2011، كانت عرسال كالمناطق الأخرى المهمشة لا تصلها التنمية ولا المشاريع الحكومية ولا الخدمات العامة و بالكاد يسمع عنها. فلا صحف تكتب عنها ولا  قنوات تهتم بنقل أخبارها ومشاكلها، وفجأة أصبحت عرسال هي الخبر، احتلت العناوين الرئيسية في الصحف وبات اسمها يتردد يوميا في نشرات الأخبار و تصريحات السياسيين والحلقات الحوارية.

Electricity workers in Lebanon, and the fate of labour, national development, and governance

As eyes were peeled elsewhere in 2012, Lebanon was experiencing significant developments. The most notable of these moments within the Lebanese front were the demonstrations and push-backs by various labour movements against political and economic structures that have dominated the state for so long.
