Displacement is a phenomenon that has emerged since ancient times around the world. The war in Syria, which broke out in 2011 and the difficult situation faced by the Syrians, obliged a huge number of them to flee inside Syria and to neighboring countries and also to the countries around the world like America, France and Germany. Our project under the title of the crisis of Syrian asylum and its impact on the Lebanese labor market (case Akkar) will be divided into two sections theoretical and practical section. In the first section we will talk about the history of displacement around the world in a nutshell. Then, we are going to talk about the beginning of the Syrian war and how it arranges Syrians to leave. We will also talk about refugees in nearby areas, especially Turkey and Jordan. We will then discuss the status of asylum in Lebanon by the numbers of Syrians and their distribution...After that, we will talk about the Lebanese labor market in general, unemployment rate, available business, job opportunities...As for the Syrian entry into the Lebanese labor market, the type of business involved, the illegal work that they practice and the law, and how it determined their work. In the second part of the project we will talk about Syrian asylum in Akkar and its impact on the laborers in Akkar, where after several questionnaires and studies, we will present the results we have reached: negative or positive impact of the Syrian asylum on laborers in this region. At the end, we will provide solutions and suggestions that we recommend to resolve this crisis. Lastly, we will conclude our project after many readings, studies and questions prepared with a conclusion and finalize it by shedding light on other problems resulted from the Syrian asylum in Lebanon, which can be discussed in particularly in later projects.
