Lebanon: Persistent discrimination against women, Palestinian refugees and LGBTI persons: Amnesty International submission to the UN Universal Periodic Review, November 2015

Amnesty International is concerned about the personal status codes which contain discriminatory provisions regarding marriage, divorce, parenting and inheritance, as well as the Law on Protection of Women and Family Members from Domestic Violence which fails to criminalize marital rape and protect women and girls. The organization is also concerned about violations of the human rights of Palestinian refugees and those fleeing conflict in Syria; exploitation of domestic workers; torture and other ill-treatment of people in detention and discrimination against persons perceived to be gay, lesbian, bisexual or transgender.
