Influencing Policy Through Research: The Case of Sexual Harassment Law in Lebanon

​​At CIBL for Women we develop knowledge to improve policies and practices, check out our article on the history of multi stakeholder mobilizing for anti-sexual harassment legislation enacted by the Lebanese parliament today. This is a small but significant step in protecting women from harm.

Today the Lebanese parliament enacted a law to criminalize sexual harassment. This follows years of multi stakeholder mobilizing and is far from perfect, it will take all of our continued collective efforts to document practices and push for recommended amendments in the year to come. 

The proposed holistic formulation developed by NCLW (National Commission for Lebanese Women), Mashreq Gender Facility and CIBL for Women can be found here​:​
