Access to justice for Syrian refugees in Lebanon

This project will generate knowledge on access to justice for Syrian refugees in Lebanon, including the role of formal courts and informal mechanisms for resolving disputes and accessing justice (e.g. community leaders, mayors, political parties or community councils).

70% of the Syrians in Lebanon lack legal documentation issued by the Lebanese authorities, according to a survey conducted in mid-2015. Although around 80% are registered with UNHCR, the lack of official residence permits limits their interaction with state authorities.

Change in exile

This project explored the role of formal and non-formal education in achieving social stability among young Syrian refugees and their host communities in Denmark and Lebanon.

Education is a crucial sector in the response to the Syrian crisis, but its potential to contribute to social stability has not yet been maximised. Bringing together young people and helping to alter negative perceptions of the ‘other’ are vitally important.
