Lebanon - empowering refugees in conflict management

The recent crisis in the Middle East has resulted in broad social and economic challenges both for the Syrian and for the Palestinian refugees in Lebanon.  The social and economic implications are extensive and are visible in day-to-day life across the country.  Engi is working on a number of initiatives to address the tensions within and outside of the camps, between different groups of refugees and the host community on the following areas:

  • Skills based training for men and women
  • Improving communication to promote non-violent solutions
  • Advocacy support to raise public awareness
  • Dialogue building within the camps and between refugee and host population
  • Capacity building for grassroots organisations
