Eight years into the Syria crisis, the vast majority (91%) of Syrians think that the Lebanese have been good hosts to those displaced by the conflict. Violence between the host communities and the refugees has remained rare and isolated, with no major instances of communal violence, attesting that social stability has largely been maintained.
Duties and Responsibilities
WhatsApp Surveying is a pertinent tool for qualitative surveying in the Lebanese context for two reasons. First, the voice note function is a very popular and widely used tool in Lebanon including among refugees (84% of Syrian refugee households use the tool and the figure is reportedly as high amongst Palestinian populations). Second, the voice message function allows the researcher to send survey questions collect people’s stories directly including from people who are illiterate, constituting a more confidential and inclusive form of data collection than traditional forms of qualitative research.
The primary focus of this study will be the PRL – Lebanese host community relationship
