Aux frontières de l'asile : les réfugiés non palestiniens au Liban.

Abstract : While nearly 400000 Palestinian refugees live in Lebanon, this country hosts non-Palestinian refugees, whose number rise from a few hundreds recognised by the UNHCR up to 30000 or 40000 according to non-official sources that include many «irregular» migrants, mainly coming from Iraq and the Sudan. To some extend, Lebanon is considered as a country of destination where refugees can find temporary asylum before returning to their country of origin. But for many others, Lebanon is considered as a transit country towards Western Europe, North America or Australia. The transit period can last several months – or several years – and refugees have evolved coping strategies in view of their extremely precarious status. Based on empirical data, this paper aims to address the theoretical issue of studying refugee movements in relation with the development of transnational practices in the Middle East.
