Palestinian Youth in Lebanon between marginalization, exploitation and radicalization

Hope, better future, stability : these are words that young Palestinian refugees in Lebanon never had the chance to say. The common feeling among them is that there is « no future ». The Lebanese jobmarket remains clsed to them ; numerous Lebanese people look at them with fear and suspicion ; an underlying racism, partly inherited from the civil war (1989-1975) ) is weighing on Palestinian youth. They feel stigmatized by negative stereotypes and are often associated with « Jihadism » or delinquency.
