dc.description.abstract This paper contributes to the literature on displacement and forced migration by presenting the findings of an exploratory study on Iraqi refugees in Lebanon from in-depth interviews and group discussions with Iraqi families in two suburbs of Beirut. The findings reveal that the absence of clear policies on war affected refugees in Lebanon have resulted in discriminatory legal actions against them which are implemented and felt differently in the two suburbs of Beirut. The Iraqi refugees who fare better are those who have stronger social support from different sources, and have clearer understanding of the processing of their resettlement paperwork. en
