About this book

Introduction

“This is a timely, detailed, and welcome work on a regional and local challenge which is often neglected in Western literature on displacement. It will be an interesting and lasting contribution to the fields of refugee and displacement studies, Middle Eastern studies, and humanitarian practice.”
Jacob Eriksson, Al Tajir Lecturer in Post-War Recovery Studies, Dept of Politics, University of York, UK

“This volume is well-considered and very relevant. Its usage will be indispensable to a variety of NGO and INGO organisations, as well as government departments, not the least being the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.”
Erica C. D. Hunter, Senior Lecturer in Eastern Christianity, Dept of History, Religions and Philosophies, SOAS, UK

This edited volume investigates the political and socioeconomic impact of the Syrian refugee crisis on Lebanon and Jordan, and these countries’ mechanisms to cope with the rapid influx of refugees. The sudden population increase has resulted in severe pressures on infrastructures and services, as well as growing social tensions between the refugees and host communities. These chapters use a transdisciplinary approach to analyse the repercussions of the humanitarian tragedy at three different levels: 1) the changing governmental policies of the two countries towards the crisis; 2) the different perceptions of the Jordanian and Lebanese local communities on the Syrian refugees; and 3) the role played by NGOs and the civil society in both countries in dealing with protracted humanitarian emergencies.
