Lebanon: Pushed to the edge: Syrian refugees face increased restrictions in Lebanon

, Index number: MDE 24/1785/2015

Over the past 18 months Amnesty International has documented, in reports and briefing papers, how a range of measures introduced by the Lebanese authorities have restricted access to refugee protection. This report focuses on the most recent restrictions introduced in January 2015, and examines the human rights impact of these restrictions on top of those previously imposed. The report concludes that the restrictions are part of a policy of the Lebanese authorities to dissuade and prevent Syria’s refugees from seeking protection in Lebanon.
