Lebanon: Limitations on Rights of Palestinian Refugee Children: Briefing to the Committee on the Rights of the Child

This document is submitted to the Committee on the occasion of the examination of Lebanon’s third periodic report. In this document, Amnesty International briefly describes how state policies and practices in Lebanon discriminate, effectively on grounds of racial and national origin, against Palestinian refugees who reside in Lebanon and that, consequently, Lebanon is failing to comply with its obligations under the Convention on the Rights of the Child. Concerns include limitations on the right to an adequate standard of living, the right to education, the right to be registered and the right to a name.
