Missing in Lebanon: Report on the Needs of their Families

Decades later, the fate of thousands of people who went missing in connection with armed conflicts in Lebanon still haunts their families. The findings of a report by the ICRC showed that even many years after the disappearance, what families require primarily and most urgently is to know what happened to their missing relatives, a need that remains largely unmet.

The report highlights other needs voiced by the families of the missing, including administrative, economic, social and psychological needs. It summarizes the outcome of interviews with more than 300 families of missing persons from all parts of Lebanon. It also includes recommendations to help the Lebanese authorities and civil society organizations to set priorities and work together on meeting the needs of families in a consistent and coordinated manner.
