Lebanon: The Precarious State of Syrian Refugee Women, Children in Lebanon
Rand – October 13, 2016
More than 13 million Syrians (PDF) in Syria and surrounding countries have been displaced by the conflict since March 2011, creating what some have called the worst refugee crisis in a generation. More than 1 million displaced Syrians have sought refuge in Lebanon, accounting for almost a quarter of the neighboring nation’s population of about 4.8 million. Syrians in Lebanon have become the largest refugee population in the world.
