Lebanon has entered its third year of a multidimensional crisis caused by political uncertainty and economic collapse, made worse by the COVID-19 pandemic and the fallout from the August 2020 Beirut Port explosion. Poverty levels are higher among traditionally marginalised groups, including vulnerable youth. A study conducted by DRC which interviewed Lebanese and Syrian youth conveyed a general feeling of hopelessness. They lack the power of opportunity, whether it be continued education or decent employment, while safety is a growing concern in their communities, in particular for young women and religious and ethnic minorities. Each of these challenges work to reinforce one another, disempowering youth and making it difficult for them to imagine a brighter future.
