Lebanon

The world’s highest number of refugees per capita

Lebanon has the world’s highest number of refugees per capita. One in four persons is a refugee. The Syrian crisis has had a profound humanitarian, socio-economic and political impact on the country. As the crisis becomes increasingly protracted, social tension is rising, driven primarily by perceived job competition.


965,291 refugees and asylum-seekers (UNHCR, February 2019)
