Al Harake Barake “Movement Is Life” – Disability Rights Advocacy Case Study Analysis

The Government of Lebanon started implementing a security plan in Tripoli putting an end to the numerous rounds of clashes and returning normalcy to the city. The clashes have left hundreds of families living in dire economic situations and increased the number of disabled individuals living in the city. While the security plan has brought calm to the city, it has not led to a return of development work to necessary economic or social levels. To complement the security apparatus, local civil society activists and NGOs started carrying out rehabilitation projects, community activities, and advocacy actions to enhance the basic conditions of the people living in the city and promote their engagement in a long-term reconciliation process.
