Lebanon Policy Network

Led by Issam Fares Institute at the American University of Beirut the Lebanon Policy Network works jointly on priority issues to produce evidence-based content to counter discriminatory public narratives and influence policies that impact refugees.

This includes for example the 'Fact of the Day Campaign' that has been in effect for the past four years. The campaign seeks to dispel the myths and counter the toxic rhetoric around Syrian refugees and the growing xenophobic sentiments against them. To date more than 200 facts (English and Arabic) have been shared online and were combined in two volumes entitled “101 Facts and Figures on the Syrian Refugee Crisis”, with volume III on the way.

Recently the Lebanon Policy Network released a joint statement advocating for refugee inclusion in the COVID-19 vaccination program.
