Security and Living Conditions
The political and security situation in Lebanon is quite complex and has proven volatile on numerous occasions. A national unity government has been formed in January 2019 after months of vacancy. Domestic tensions remain considerable and despite a relative stability, risks of rapid escalation and context deterioration are non-negligible. Reflective of divisions within the Lebanese society and the subsequent political landscape, the situation of Syrian refugees is becoming increasingly precarious.
International tensions are also a risk factor to consider, although the risk of an imminent conflict seems contained.
Overall, despite the tensions the security situation is currently good, and expats enjoy a high level of freedom. There is at the time of writing - no curfew in place on the Lebanon mission and international staff can move around with very limited restrictions. There are however some no-go areas as well as some areas requiring prior validation by the security team.
