Refugees at Home: A Livelihoods Assessment of Lebanese Returnees from Syria

Over three years after it began, the Syria crisis continues to weigh extremely heavily upon Lebanon. Around a quarter of its population is now made up of refugees, whose needs remain dire even as the resources available to address them appear to be shrinking.

Prices have risen, labor markets are saturated and public service providers overstretched.

Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon: ANERA Reports on the ground in the Middle East

The list of challenges Palestinian refugee families living in Lebanon face is long and overwhelming. They live in overcrowded camps and have to deal with discrimination, isolation and social exclusion. The refugees often refer to themselves as “forgotten people” and feel they are living in a hostile environment where their basic human rights are not represented or protected. Caught in the middle of an unsettled political conflict beyond their control, they manage to survive with limited resources and a restricted legal, economic and social system.
