The crisis in Syria led to an influx of at least 1 million Syrian refugees in Lebanon and 651,000 in Jordan, prior to drawing Turkey and Greece into the turmoil.  Syrian refugees now account for about 18% of the Lebanese population.  This situation obviously has an impact on access to work, basic services and, more generally, the country’s development challenges.  Sami Atallah, Executive Director of the Lebanese Center for Policy Studies (LCPS) in Beirut, takes a close look at this situation and at what welcoming these immigrants involves, for Lebanon as well as for Europe .
