A Future in the Balance: Lebanon

It is believed that one in every four persons in Lebanon is a refugee and that approximately 16% of the 1.5 million refugees living in the country are believed to be between the ages of 15 and 24.

This report was commissioned in support of the Norwegian Refugee Council’s (NRC) regional youth report, A Future in the Balance: How conflict in Syria is impacting on the needs, concerns and aspirations of young people across the Middle East.

The study discloses a generation that is stunted in development, deprived of an adolescence, and forced into premature adulthood. These young adults face more complex administrative barriers to accessing education than they would have faced as refugee children. Young women face added threats of increased domestic and gender-based violence.
