The training “Understanding Social Protection in Lebanon: Ways forward towards universal social security”, organised by the Centre for Social Sciences Research and Action (CeSSRA), offers a participatory, interdisciplinary, and in-depth immersion in social protection issues in Lebanon. The training, aimed for civil society actors and groups, offers an introductory overview to social protection and security concepts and approaches, as well as practices in Lebanon. Indeed, the social protection system in the country, is characterized by its fragmented and exclusionary nature, that the ongoing crises have only contributed to magnify.

This session is part of the webinar series launched by CeSSRA on “The Politics of Social Justice in Lebanon: Between Citizenship, Identities and Compounding Crises” aimed at analysing the current social protection system and its limitations. It seeks to inform public policy debates, and shift social justice and protection narratives and programmes from charity to a citizen-based approach.

The first session of this webinar cycle will present and discuss the research of Dr. Leyla Dakhli on the “Bread Riots” that broke out in Tunisia on 28 December 1983, in the wake of World Bank-sponsored programmes. This movement lasted barely ten days, yet cost the lives of over one hundred people. The research explains how the inhabitants in popular neighborhoods reacted to the establishment of a new form of welfare state that was more concerned with fighting poverty – or fighting the poor – than with equalizing conditions or offering the same opportunities for everyone. Dr Dakhli will discuss how these protests marked a break with past practices of state reform and popular protest, and suggest that International Monetary Fund and World Bank prescriptions reconfigured the political and social landscapes of independent Tunisia.
