Given the high global prevalence of men harassing women in public transit, this study contributes to the body of evidence around the extent to which men harass women in public transit in order to inform practical solutions. This case study was initiated by members of the Tripoli-based feminist organization Mosawat, which felt that taxi harassment is a significant barrier to women’s access to education and jobs. It was completed as part of UN Women’s Men and Women for Gender Equality project (Phase II), funded by the Government of Sweden, and implemented in collaboration with the feminist NGO KAFA.
“Justice for me is living free and as a human being" - An Analytical Study of Access to Justice for Sexual and Gender-Based Violence case of Syrian Refugees in Lebanon
The aim of the study is to understand the pathways that Syrian refugee women utilise to access justice for SGBV cases in Lebanon, both in the state legal and judicial system (formal) and within community-based mechanisms (informal). Focus is given to unpacking the informal justice landscape for Syrian refugee communities, given the limited concrete documentation of community-based dispute resolutions and related practices specifically for SGBV issues.
In 2017 Lebanese parliament passed a new electoral law, in the lead up to the 2018 parliamentary elections. In the lead up to the 2022 elections, UN Women, in partnership with local organization LADE, undertook this study to better understand the impediments to women’s participation and representation in political life. This research paper aims to explore the current electoral law from a gendered perspective, to provide recommendations for reform. It also explores other factors that prevent women from running for elected positions on a footing equal to men.
