Palestinian Labor Force
[February 2014] After more than six decades of forced displacement, Palestinian refugees in Lebanon find themselves largely excluded from the formal labor market. As a result of discriminatory labor laws and biased attitudes, most Palestinians face precarious working conditions and economic hardship. This series of four infographics was created in partnership with the ILO and the CEP (Committee for Employment of Palestinians Refugees in Lebanon).
