Adolescents and Youth Assessment of Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon

The study commissioned by UNICEF, investigated the living conditions of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon. The study investigated existing resources and opportunities (education, health, social and economic), and assessed the overall well-being of young Palestinian refugees both from Syria and originally residing in Lebanon, in 8 Palestinian camps across Lebanon.

This assessment contributed to existing surveys, which mainly focused on the socio-economic and legal conditions of Palestinians in Lebanon, by examining the perceptions of Palestinian refugee adolescents and youth of their own immediate unmet needs and the ways in which they can be fulfilled. This examination is relevant to design further programmes addressing the needs of young Palestinians in the future.
