Lost Hope, Lost Lives: Insights into Lebanese Irregular Migration
Amid a deteriorating situation, an increasing number of Lebanese nationals are seeking to leave the country irregularly, often relying on migrant smugglers to secure passage by sea to Europe. The International Organization for Migration conducted an in-depth research study to explore the intentions, factors, and decision-making processes driving irregular migration among Lebanese individuals, with a focus on high-risk areas in Tripoli and Akkar.
The findings of this research have been published in the report “Lost Hope, Lost Lives: Insights into Lebanese Irregular Migration” which provides timely insights and recommendations to address the drivers of irregular migration from Lebanon and support safe and legal alternatives, such as labour mobility pathways.
