Adolescent Girls in Crisis: Voices form Beirut

19.10.2020 / Created by (EMWF)

Within the urban refugee communities of Lebanon, hosting the largest number of refugees per capita in the world, adolescent girls are impacted by the surrounding crisis in ways that are not only different from adolescent boys and women, but also are often overlooked. This report explores the experiences of adolescent girls - within two age brackets of 10-14 and 15-19 years- navigating urban spaces in order to access services and opportunities. It seeks to amplify their voices and perceptions of their lives and communities and presents their views on how the humanitarian sector might respond to the challenges they face.

The findings are drawn from research conducted with adolescent girls and their communities in Beirut and its suburbs (Shatila, Bourj Al Barajneh and Bourj Hammoud) during October and November 2018.
