This policy brief was developed based on an in-depth report titled “Women’s Political Participation: Exclusion and Reproduction of Social Roles. Case Studies from Lebanon;” in addition to discussions and insights gathered during a consultation workshop held on 8 November 2018, and which marked the participation of women who had taken part of the research, as well as activists, representatives of civil society organisations, and academics.

في إطار النظام السياسي اللبناني الذي يقوم على المحاصصة الطائفية والعائلية السياسية والزبائنية المتمثلة في نظام الزعامة، والذي يعزز من الأبوية القائمة على القرابية، تسعى هذه الدراسة إلى فهم وتحليل مشاركة النساء في مواقع قيادية وقاعدية في أربعة كيانات في لبنان تتضمن حزب سياسي، نقابة، منظمة مجتمع مدني وحركة اجتماعية. تفحص الدراسة الهياكل والبنى المؤسسية لتلك الكيانات ومواقفها من قضايا النساء، والديناميات التي تعتمدها للتفاعل مع محيطها، وذلك من خلال تحليل وثائقها الرسمية، خطابها العام، ممارساتها، وأخيراً تجارب النساء المنتميات لها وما عايشنه من تحديات ضمن هذا الإطار.

بالإضافة إلى هذه التقرير، أعّد مركز دعم لبنان رسم بياني مبني على نتائج هذا البحث بعنوان "العوائق التي تعرقل المشاركة السياسية الكاملة للمرأة في لبنان".

Lebanon may witness a remarkable rise in the number of women serving in Parliament come May 2018 due to initiatives from women’s groups, “civil society” activists, and the substantial number of female candidates – 113 at the start of the election period. However, as this briefing paper shows, Lebanese women continue to face numerous challenges in entering government. The new electoral law passed in June 2017 does not provide women with equal opportunity to be elected, and it is yet to be seen whether it will increase female representation in Parliament. Nevertheless, the historic number of female candidates running in this election demonstrates that women are more determined than ever to increase their presence in Lebanese politics.

This Gender Manual is a practical guide for civil society organisations in Lebanon that wish to enhance gender equity in their practices and policies. Far from being exhaustive, this manual contains practical guidelines that can help to both gain a better understanding of gender-sensitive topics, as well as to integrate and implement them in internal processes, action plans, and organisational structures and policies. It is informed by the findings of a series of meetings and consultations with various stakeholders engaged in gender issues. It is worth noting, however, that the guidelines provided in these pages are general, and should thus be tailored and incorporated depending on the organisation’s type, specialisation, and focus.

While women’s issues and rights have been at the forefront of public and civil society debate, academic, and activist publications, women’s inequalities and the discrimination women face in Lebanon have been notably undermined, whether as citizens, refugees, or migrants. However, if the publicising of the “issue of women in Lebanon” has prompted the production of more “gender-related” information and knowledge, it has oftentimes adopted the rhetoric of denunciation and victimisation. Hence, there is a scarcity of in-depth and sectoral studies on the logics of exclusion and discrimination in comparison to the number of studies adopting holistic approaches to the conditions and status of women in Lebanon.

The objective of the Civil Society Review is to bring civil society practitioners, experts, activists, and researchers together to develop knowledge, as well as to innovate new tools and practices so as to strengthen Lebanon’s civil society and its voice. The Civil Society Review produces evidence-based research and analysis and disseminates findings and recommendations to promote civic engagement, shape policies, and stimulate debate within civil society spheres in Lebanon.

This issue of Tatimma focuses on the question of civil rights and liberties in Lebanon. Whilst it is usually considered that civil freedoms in Lebanon are light-years ahead of other Arab countries. Yet this state of liberties appears to be more a facade for a discriminatory system which limits the liberties of Lebanese citizens, specifically Lebanese women, refugees, foreign workers to name a few.

This report aims to provide statistical and analytical tools for the recovery community working in North Lebanon, specifically those working with the Nahr el-Bared displaced and returnee population. The information will allow for better assessment of current needs and gaps, which will eventually support the development of appropriate strategies of intervention on both the short and long term.
