The Long-term Challenges of Forced Migration: Local and Regional Perspectives from Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq

In a workshop held on 17–18 June 2016, the LSE Middle East Centre brought together a diverse group of people (policymakers from host states, representatives from international organisations, academics and NGOs practitioners) to explore the effects of the Syrian refugee crisis on Arab host states such as Lebanon, Jordan, and Iraq. 

The workshop presented an opportunity to listen to the challenges faced by host states and to examine the responses of international organisations, governments and local communities to the crisis. The following video presents highlights from the workshop. This volume brings together a set of papers presented at the workshop. It also presents a list of key recommendations relevant for all stakeholders and agreed upon by participants.
