Unprotected Childhood; the experiences of Lebanese and Non-Lebanese children in abuse maltreatment and discrimination in Lebanon

On the 10th of December and on the occasion of the International Human Rights Day, Insan launched a new report examining the situation of children, both migrant and Lebanese, in Lebanon.

The final report reveals the particular vulnerabilities of children of migrants to child labor, abuse and maltreatment compared to their Lebanese counterparts. Children of migrants both documented and undocumented were less likely to be registered. They were also more likely to take part in child labor. The research also finds that children of migrants are more likely to be subjected to neglect and sexual abuse.
