Abstract

Migration Profile provides an introduction to migration challenges in Beirut. While only focusing on a snapshot of immigration rather than emigration in the city, the profile aims to improve our understanding of challenges in relation to migrants in Beirut (population density, eviction threats, racial harassment, lack of affordability, etc.). The profile offers new evidence on the types of vulnerabilities facing migrants in contrasting neighbourhoods in Beirut Municipality. This may serve to highlight aspects of the nature and urgency of challenges facing migrants as a basis for considering their role in the development of the city.
