One in four people in Lebanon is a Syrian refugee.Lebanon, which has long been a victim of regional conflicts, combines a mix of economic openness, pluralism, democracy, cultural freedom and liberty, which is exceptional in the Middle East. Civil peace, public institutions and the economy might not survive it.In 2015, an estimated 170,000 Lebanese had fallen into poverty, whilst 90 percent of refugees are sinking deeper into the infernal cycle of debt and negative coping mechanisms, such as child labour and early marriage.Host communities have been the frontline provider of assistance to refugees.Preparing the future is also about maintaining the dignity of the refugees and host communities.No refugee wants to remain a refugee.
