Refugee communities in Lebanon face overlapping forms of exclusion along social, economic, and legal lines. Covid-19 and the deteriorating economic and political situation in Lebanon has exacerbated the vulnerability and the precarious conditions of the already marginalized Syrian and Palestinian refugee communities. The webinar will focus on the issue of solidarity inside Syrian and Palestinian refugee populations in Lebanon, the local solidarity networks during the crisis, and the critique of global neoliberalism, patriarchy, militarism and war.
The event is the first in the webinar series on Solidarities in Times of Wars and Refuge: Syria, Lebanon, and Palestine in the Global Pandemic organized by KnowWar, a research project funded by the Austrian Development Cooperation. For more information see: https://www.know-war.net/webinar-series
We are looking forward to your participation.
