ILO-CEP Roundtable Meetings on the Results of the “Labour Force Survey of Palestinians living in Refugee Camps and Selected Gatherings in Lebanon”
Funded by European Union
Within the EU-funded project "Improving Access to Employment and Social Protection for Palestinian Refugees Living in Lebanon", the ILO Regional Office for Arab States in Beirut in partnership with the Committee for Employment of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon (CEP) has implemented a labour force survey among Palestinian refugees in the camps and specific gatherings end of 2011. The field work and processing of data was undertaken by the Palestinian Central Bureau of Statistics with technical support from FAFO Institute for Applied Research (Norway). The aim of the survey is to provide reliable and up-to-date data on Palestinian employment in the country in order to empower advocacy efforts and to support evidence-based policy making for improved employment conditions for Palestinian refugees.
Within this framework, three roundtable meetings to discuss the preliminary findings of the survey will be organized. Each meeting will involve different group of audience as the following:
- First Meeting: Researchers, experts and academicians
- Second Meeting: Government representatives, international organizations and the donor community
- Third Meeting: Palestinian and Lebanese civil society organizations and the Right to Work Coalition.
