School for stability: Examining the role of education in fostering social stability in Lebanon

This report explores education opportunities in Lebanon in light of the protracted Syria crisis, examining their potential in supporting social stability between host and refugee communities. It argues that education has strong potential to support social stability in Lebanon.

The research examines four different elements of the intersection between education and social stability: formal education, non-formal education, the role of parents and structural challenges, and the potential for collaboration between people and institutions.

The research has been produced as part of the ‘Change in exile’ project implemented by International Alert in Lebanon and Roskilde University in Denmark, which seeks to generate evidence on the role of education in supporting social stability in both countries.
