Travailleurs étrangers, réfugiés syriens et marché du travail au Liban

Abstract : In 2011, half of the 1,500,000 labor force in Lebanon was already made of non Lebanese workers. Among them, 300,000 to 400,000 Syrians were employed mainly in agriculture and construction, but also in the service sector – mainly in hotels and restaurants – often on a seasonal basis. The sudden arrival of hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugees has completely changed the situation of the labor market. It inceased the pressure on wages and on working conditions of the most vulnerable workers, Lebanese as well as non-Lebanese. The paper addresses the implications of the increasing fragmentation of the labor maket and its relation to the dynamics of market globalisation.
