Studies On Youth Policies In The Mediterranean Partner Countries - Lebanon

Published on


Young people represent one fifth of the total population of four million inhabitants in Lebanon. Generally speaking, they are not recognised as being an important segment of the Lebanese society, but only as an element of a bigger community, which remains based upon denominational lines. The last decades have stressed the lines of division around political and denominational issues without special consideration given to youth issues, which means that, for the majority of young people socialisation is based on the community and not on age. Only a minority of young people develop social relations with the other religious communities.
