LOUISE is a joint initiative by UNHCR, UNICEF, WFP, Save the Children and World Vision. LOUISE streamlines humanitarian cash assistance for socio-economically disadvantaged Syrian refugees and Lebanese, based on their vulnerabilities. The LOUISE platform is built to meet the needs of Syrian refugees and poor Lebanese and it is open for other agencies and non-governmental agencies to join.

In line with government policy, no formal refugee camps were established in Lebanon in response to the influx of Syrian refugees. Consequently, some one million registered Syrian refugees live in cities, villages or spontaneously set-up tented settlements throughout the country.

There is no national framework for refugee rights in Lebanon and the country’s actions toward incoming refugees are primarily governed by ad hoc policies. Lebanon has ratified the ICESCR as well as the 1993 Agreement for Economic and Social Cooperation with Syria. Although Lebanon is not party to the 1951 Refugee Convention, principles of human rights law are embedded in the Lebanese constitution. 

The 2003 Memorandum of Understanding with UNHCR identifies Lebanon as a country of transit. This means that refugees recognized by UNHCR must be resettled in a third country within a six-month period (which can be extended once). The Lebanese government, however, considers the current Syrian crisis outside the scope of the MOU and gives minimal legal authority to the UNHCR recognition of refugee status. The government labels Syrian refugees as “displaced,” rather than as “refugees.” 

Once lauded for its open-door policy, the Lebanese government began placing restrictions on Syrians both entering and residing in Lebanon in January 2015. Since 2015, many of these restrictions, including a $200 residency fee and a mandatory pledge to refrain from working, have been lifted for Syrians with UNHCR cards; however, Human Rights Watch has found that these changes are often enforced inconsistently. Some refugees receive food and cash assistance from UNHCR, World Food Programme, and local churches and mosques.

Refugees in Lebanon must obtain or renew a residence permit and work permit in order to stay in the country and work legally. This permit can be obtained in one of two ways: refugees must either receive sponsorship from a Lebanese national or they need to have a UNHCR registration certificate with at least 6 months validity remaining and a housing attestation issued by UNHCR.
