OVERVIEW

Lebanon has the highest per capita population of refugees in the world, which continues to put an enormous strain on social services, infrastructure and employment. While active conflict in Syria has decreased, there is pressure on displaced Syrians to return home, though many are not yet able to safely and voluntarily do so.
