Predicament of Lebanese Women Married to Non-Lebanese

26.01.2018 / Created by (EMWF)

This field study was conducted in collaboration with the United Nations Development Program (Lebanese Women’s Rights and the Nationality Law Project) and the National Commission for Follow-up on Women’s Issues. The study aims at figuring out the number of Lebanese women married to non-Lebanese and the number of their children, from a statistical perspective. It also aims at identifying the social and economic status of women and their husbands and their nationalities, as well as the most important problems affecting the lives of their families, especially the problems facing their children. The study also highlighted national barriers to significant progress in the issue of women’s rights in general and the Nationality Law in particular. It also showed that the inability of women to grant their nationality to their husbands and children deprives them of their basic rights as citizens and deprives their children of their basic rights as human beings.
