Detailed description of project Back

The programme and component managed by UNRWA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency) for Palestine Refugees in the Near East under the EU support to be evaluated aim to provide scholarships to Palestinian Refugees living in Lebanon.

Legal restrictions to the labour market coupled with discrimination, bring the unemployment of Palestinian refugees to extremely high levels. This has been traditionally offset by engaging on the black labour market and by labour migration (mainly within the region).

The overall objective of the scholarship support is to contribute to economic self-reliance of the young Palestinian refugees by improving their access to labour market. The specific objective is to provide qualified Palestinian students with the opportunity to pursue academic education at Lebanese higher education institutions and benefit from complementary job coaching and networking support.

The specific objective of the assignment is to undertake the final evaluation of two programmmes, implemented by UNRWA through contribution agreements.
