Radicalization topped a list of six concerns that the Syrian refugee crisis presents for Lebanon, according to a study by the Ankara-based Center for Middle Eastern Strategic Studies (ORSAM), presented Wednesday at the American University of Beirut's Issam Fares Institute.The report compares and examines the social, economic, political, and security implications of the Syrian crisis on Syria's four immediate neighbors: Lebanon, Turkey, Jordan, and Iraq.With the reported number of Syrian refugees in Lebanon vacillating between 1 and 1.7 million individuals, Lebanon by far hosts the largest number of Syrian refugees in the world in comparison to the size of its population; according to the ORSAM report, one in every four is Syrian. ORSAM researchers also said that of the Syrians who have fled to Syria's immediate neighbors, 60 percent went to Turkey, 22 percent are in Lebanon, 14 percent reside in Jordan, and around 4 percent are in Iraq.
