“Labor Right of Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon – Access to Liberal Professions” and “Reality on the Access of Palestinian Refugees to Liberal Professions in Lebanon” studies

15 Apr 2016

Within the framework of the “Lebanese-Palestinian Dialogue Forum” that aims at contributing to the development of clear and rational Lebanese national policies with respect to the Palestinian refugees’ presence in Lebanon, a need arose to launch an in-depth dialogue with professional associations around the challenges facing Palestinian refugees in practicing professional occupations and joining the related associations.

Based on the above, two studies, a legal and a field study, were commissioned. These two studies have been conducted with the aim to provide accurate information that would serve the development of policies in this regard. The legal study has been conducted by lawyers Nizar Saghieh and Karim Nammour, and the field study was conducted by Dr. Mahmoud el-Ali.
