Saturday 20th June 2020 is World Refugee Day. This year’s theme is “Every Action Counts”, highlighting refugees’ contributions to their societies, and the importance of creating a more just, equal, and inclusive world in which no one is left behind. The Centre for Lebanese Studies (CLS) and the Centre for Development and Emergency Practice’s (CENDEP) research programme “From Education to Employment” - funded by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) - works with young people living in protracted displacement in Lebanon and Jordan, seeking to understand their trajectories from education to employment.
