A Conversation with His Excellency Pierre Bouassi, Minister of Social Affairs, The Republic of Lebanon

  • Wilson Center 1300 Pennsylvania Avenue Northwest Washington, DC, 20004 United States (map)

Lebanon is home to the highest number of refugees per capita, hosting approximately 1.5 million refugees in a country of only 6 million people. The country’s weak infrastructure, challenging economic conditions, and the growing radicalization of youth and refugees place a heavy burden on the Lebanese state. In addition, the rise of tensions between refugees and their host communities are affecting the country’s fragile sectarian balance and increasing insecurity in the region. The Wilson Center is welcoming Minister Bouassi to address these and other issues.
