Enhancing Access to Justice for Survivors of Domestic Violence in Lebanon

12.07.2021 / Created by (EMWF)

The present study is a legal study that analyzes the jurisprudence of Lebanese Judges of Urgent Matters issued under Law 293/2014 on domestic violence, as well as the jurisprudence of various Lebanese religious courts pertaining to family law matters with elements of domestic violence.

The aim of this study is to identify inaccurate current legal gaps in practices of these judges and courts, in an effort to improve the outcome of cases for survivors of domestic violence in the fight against gender-based violence, which is one of the key engagements of the European Union and the subject of its latest Gender Action Plan for 2021–2025.
