Le dossier des apatrides refait surface, avec les naissances syriennes non enregistrées

Après avoir été enfoui pendant plusieurs années, le dossier des apatrides refait surface avec la naissance en six ans au Liban de 120 000 petits Syriens environ, dont la grande majorité n'est pas enregistrée. Ces derniers ne sont certes pas apatrides, ils ont une nation. Mais pour être reconnus comme syriens, encore faut-il qu'ils soient enregistrés auprès des autorités libanaises et syriennes, ce qui nécessite non moins de six formalités. Au Liban ou à l'étranger, face à une crise migratoire sans précédent, le dossier est aujourd'hui d'actualité. D'autant que le pays du Cèdre a son propre lot d'apatrides depuis le…

Tensions rise as Cabinet postpones talks on Syrian refugees’ return

Despite Prime Minister Saad Hariri’s request to put aside controversial topics during Wednesday’s Cabinet session in Baabda, tensions escalated when the topic of Syrian refugees’ return to their homeland was raised. Minister of State for Planning Michel Pharaon and Minister of State for Parliamentary Affairs Ali Qanso were embroiled in a brief verbal spat after the latter reportedly said there would be no return of refugees if there was no dialogue with the Syrian government. “I told him that it is completely unacceptable to say this and I’m not sure if he was posing a threat or trying to instigate…

Retour des déplacés privilégier l’ONU comme partenaire plutôt que Damas

Au raid de l'armée vendredi dernier dans un camp de déplacés syriens à Ersal, et la contre-offensive terroriste à laquelle elle a fait face, a succédé une polémique politique qui pourrait s'exacerber demain en Conseil des ministres. L'objet de cette polémique n'est pas nouveau : il ramène la question litigieuse de savoir si les autorités libanaises doivent ou non mener des négociations directes avec le régime syrien pour sécuriser graduellement un retour des déplacés. Toutes les parties politiques libanaises ayant toujours été naturellement consentantes à ce retour, le plus dur reste d'obtenir un consensus sur ses modalités. Il faut savoir…

Iraqi refugee extradition ‘violates’ UNCAT

Iraqi refugee Zeyad al-Dolaee, charged by Iraqi authorities with terrorist activity, was extradited to his home country Wednesday despite attempts to persuade Lebanese authorities to deny the Iraqi authorities’ request. The extradition has come under fire from international organizations, which claim that the extradition is a violation of the United Nations Convention against Torture. Article 3 of UNCAT stipulates that “no state party shall expel, return or extradite a person” to their home country if there is “substantial grounds” for belief that the person would be subjected to torture on their return. Lebanon ratified UNCAT in 2000 but has yet…

Education of Syrian refugees children

في ظروف الأزمات الإنسانية، تزداد جاذبية مشاركة القطاع الخاص في التعليم لدى شريحة متنامية من المجتمع الدولي بحجة محدودية قدرة الحكومات المأزومة وغياب قطاع عام مستقر وفاعل. وفي سياق أزمة اللاجئين السوريين، حيث تكابد نظم التعليم الرسمي في الأردن وتركيا ولبنان لاستيعاب العدد المتزايد من اللاجئين، يتسارع انخراط الشركات العالمية المعروفة في دعم تعليم هؤلاء، ما يثير جدلاً دولياً واسعاً. منظمة «الدولية للتربية» أعدّت دراسة طرحت فيها الهواجس بشأن «الخصخصة عن طريق الكارثة» ودوافع ابتغاء الربح وارتباط ذلك بالالتحاق بالتعليم وواجب الدولة بتوفير التعليم النوعي فاتن الحاج 900 ألف طفل لاجئ سوري غير مسجلين في المدارس في الأردن وتركيا ولبنان،…

The file of displaced syrians

بعد 6 سنوات من النزوح السوري إلى لبنان، لم يتمكن أركان الدولة من التعامل مع الملف خارج حساباتهم السياسية والعنصرية. ستّ جهات رسمية تعمل على هذا الخط، كلّ منها يحاول فرض رؤيته الخاصة بعيداً عن المصلحة الحقيقية للدولة. التناقضات تُشكل مكاناً مثالياً للمجتمع الدولي حتى يتمكن من فرض رؤيته ليا القزي منذ خريف 2011، وقضية النازحين السوريين إلى لبنان تُعَدّ من أهم الملفات الداخلية اللبنانية. انقسمت القوى السياسية حوله، ولسنوات لم تتمكن الدولة من وضع سياسة موحدة للتعامل مع الأزمة. مقاربة كلّ طرف لموضوع النازحين تبعاً لموقفه من النظام السوري أدّت إلى تعقيد الوضع. بعد دخول الأزمة السورية عامها السابع،…
