Shifting the paradigm: in-depth study of the social security system in Lebanon

The objective of this paper is to provide an in-depth assessment of the social security system in Lebanon, to highlight gaps in coverage, adequacy, and comprehensiveness, and to offer policy options for the establishment of an inclusive, rights-based, lifecycle social securityy model. In doing so, it contributes to calls from a growing chorus of actors for more inclusive systems, while providing civil society and the broad public with a more focused understanding of alternatives that can inform a more robust public discourse around Lebanon’s future social security system.
