“Justice for me is living free and as a human being" - An Analytical Study of Access to Justice for Sexual and Gender-Based Violence case of Syrian Refugees in Lebanon
The aim of the study is to understand the pathways that Syrian refugee women utilise to access justice for SGBV cases in Lebanon, both in the state legal and judicial system (formal) and within community-based mechanisms (informal). Focus is given to unpacking the informal justice landscape for Syrian refugee communities, given the limited concrete documentation of community-based dispute resolutions and related practices specifically for SGBV issues. The report suggests short-term and long-term interventions to improve justice mechanisms in Lebanon and includes recommendations for humanitarian and development stakeholders to mitigate risks and maximise positive outcomes for survivors seeking justice.
