As the Syrian Crisis nears its eighth year, the number of Syrians seeking refuge in other countries has reached an unprecedented scale. With more than 250,000 people killed, 1.2 million injured and 6.5 million people displaced, there are now 13.5 million vulnerable people inside Syria alone. Over 5 million refugees from Syria have fled to neighbouring countries particularly Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, Iraq and Egypt
After Turkey, Lebanon is the second host country for Syrian refugees with just under 1 million refugees registered (and an estimated .5 million unregistered) for an overall population of less than 4.5 million (Source: OCHA Bulletin n33 – 2018). Prior to this crisis, Lebanon was already hosting half a million Palestinian refugees; the pressure on the Lebanese government and local population is very high. Social tensions between communities relate primarily to the competition for unskilled works, while recent surveys (ARK 2018) have shown that there are less and less interactions between refugees and Lebanese.
Due to some concern of infiltration of terrorist groups in Lebanon, in March 2015, the government of Lebanon, through the General Security Directorate, is enforcing entry regularization among refugees entering from Syria. The Lebanese government has also asked the UNHCR to stop the registration process hence new refugees and new born babies cannot be registered anymore either. Since then, it is now much harder for Syrians to enter the country, while those residing in Lebanon are also facing difficulties in renewing their residency or having access to humanitarian aid or public facilities. This situation will cause an increased economic strain on the families, although the ban on work has been left (for occupations related to construction, agriculture and maintenance only) in 2016.
