In recognition of the importance of responding to the concerns of the poor Lebanese households alongside those of Syrian and Palestinian populations, Oxfam believes in the importance of investing in understanding poverty in Lebanon for both host and refugee populations, and the policies and programmes designed and implemented by the government to address it. This research is an effort to gain a better insight into the lives and struggles of the poor in Lebanon; the formal and informal support mechanisms accessed by them for their survival and to recommend programmatic and policy initiatives for Oxfam in Lebanon. The scope of this study is at the core of the 2 aims of the Issam Fares Institute for Public Policy and International Affairs at the American University of Beirut. It is expected that studying social protection policies will help policy makers design better, more responsive social protection and poverty alleviation policies.
