This exploratory study is the first of its kind and aims to develop a conceptual framework for the preparation of expatriates for the Lebanese humanitarian context. It identifies the factors that influence work, psychological, and socio-cultural adjustment and how they may be tackled to improve overall expatriate adjustment. Moreover, it classifies the kinds of culture shock that are commonly faced in Lebanon. Finally, training programs are suggested in order to improve the expatriation process by enhancing adjustment and reducing culture shock.
