The Centre for Lebanese Studies is an independent research institution that focuses on four main themes: education, refugees, social movement, and disability.

As part of the latter theme and among its various activities on disability, CLS established the Disability Hub, which is a platform of Organisations with people with disabilities OPDs , international organisations, and local NGOs that work in the disability field. It promotes the rights of persons with disabilities across Lebanon, makes efforts to advance human rights , and supports organisations of persons with disabilities to hold their government to account by implementing Law 220/2000 and advocating for inclusion in mainstream services, policies, and procedures.
