Refugees Managment & Return Policies

On the 30th of April 2018, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung and the Middle East Institute for Research and Strategic Studies (MEIRSS) are organizing a roundtable discussing the situation of the Syrian refugees in Lebanon and possible return policies.


The event will feature the presentation and debate of two policy papers published in cooperation with KAS and MEIRSS: “The Head Out of the Sand - Addressing the legal and practical options” by George Ghali, Human Rights Researcher and “Return of Syrian refugees to their countries: approaches and possibilities” by the MEIRSS team.

Further topics to be discussed will be the outcomes of the Brussels Conference, possible durable solutions for the Syrian refugee crisis, as well as the responses and responsibilities of different actors like host countries and the European Union.
