Search for Common Ground - Conflict Analysis and Power Dynamics – Lebanon - July 2020

This report draws together a nationwide analysis of conflict and power dynamics in Lebanon, with data collected between December 2019 and May 2020. It aims at facilitating a better understanding of the triggers that cause tensions both within host communities and between host communities and refugees, as well as identifying key connectors and sources of resilience at the community-based level. The findings and recommendations informed a project implemented by Search for Common Ground, “Fostering Social Stability Through Strategic Communications,” which aims at the cultivation of positive dialogues and narratives between and across communities, and the shifting of perceptions towards greater trust and respect.
