Qualitative research on social tensions in Lebanon

Updated: Oct 12


To complement and extend the tension monitoring system, UNDP commissioned a longitudinal qualitative research to gather rich insights from Syrians and Lebanese host communities themselves on social stability as a means ‘to unpack how inter-community tensions are related, why changes have been observed, and how incidences could be mitigated’.


Over the course of 2019, Empatika worked with both Syrian and Lebanese researchers to explore these dynamics through an RCA implemented across Lebanon’s eight governorates. This study was completed in December 2012 and provided insight into the factors driving tension and, more often, cooperation among these communities and how these relations are shaped by aid, politics, and economic factors.
