The research, entitled Better together, looks at the impact of the schooling of Lebanese and Syrian displaced pupils on social stability in Lebanon. It was conducted between May and July 2015 in the northern Akkar region and Bourj Hammoud in the eastern suburbs of Beirut. A total of 94 Syrian and Lebanese schoolchildren, parents and teachers took part in the 14 focus groups, with five additional interviews conducted with school principals, teachers and aid workers.
