No. of pages: 20

Publication date: 2013

Author: UNFPA and several GBV actors in Lebanon

Although Lebanon is considered to be relatively more open compared to other Arab countries, there remain nonetheless many shortcomings in the fight against Gender Based Violence (GBV), with women constituting 96% of all its victims. Most importantly, any development that takes place in this small country is largely reflected on its surroundings, and it is only natural to consider that supporting women and population issues in Lebanon would go a long way towards advancing them in the Arab world.
