Human Rights


The Human Rights situation in Lebanon is heavily linked to its fragile political situation. The country has experienced decades of protracted political uncertainty and stalled development, and while certain freedoms of expression and associations are generally relatively well respected, human rights violations in civil, political, economic, social and cultural spheres are evident.

OHCHR has signed a joint agreement with the European Delegation to implement a project entitled “Assisting Lebanon in implementing UPR and recommendations made by other human rights mechanisms”, aiming at supporting Lebanon in implementing the accepted UPR recommendations and enhancing the country’s record in providing timely reports to the treaty bodies through addressing longstanding gaps within the national legislative and policy framework on human rights protection and delays in establishing key human rights structures.
