Rights Based Advocacy in Lebanon (2013-2018) Challenges, Successes And Lessons Learned

Lebanese firm BRD and Counterpart undertook a mapping of advocacy campaigns active in Lebanon between 2013 and 2018, specifically civil society efforts related to the use of public space, women’s rights to nationality, solid waste management, the rights of people with disabilities, and answers for parents of individuals disappeared during Lebanon’s civil war. As these campaigns include demands for government action, transparency, and policy change, governance and accountability is a common thread throughout the case studies. The resulting five studies highlight best practices and common factors contributing to civil society’s advocacy successes or shortcomings and enhance an understanding of CSOs’ needs while working on advocacy to further advance rights and reform in Lebanon.
