MAPs, a case study of Syrian-led provision for refugees in Lebanon: Challenges and ways forward

with Brian Lally and Tom McEwan

1-2pm on Thursday, Nov. 9th 

Brian Lally is an education consultant working in Lebanon.  He has recently completed a semi-ethnographic case study with UCL-Institute of Education exploring the quality of provision within Multi-Aid Programs (MAPs), a Syrian-led NGO which provides non-formal education to 3,000 refugee children through nine teaching centres located in the camps. Additionally, MAPs’ health care program treats more than 13,000 refugee patients each month.

This WIP will involve discussion of the work of Syrian-led initiatives to provide support from within the refugee community, as well as consideration of the challenges faced by this group and possible ways forward. He will be joined by Tom McEwan, a HGSE Masters student who has also been closely involved in the work of MAPs.
