Social protection is concerned with preventing, managing, and overcoming situations that adversely affect people’s wellbeing. Social protection consists of policies and programs designed to reduce vulnerability by promoting efficient labour markets and policies, diminishing people’s exposure to risks, and enhancing their capacity to manage economic and social risks, such as unemployment, exclusion, sickness, disability and old age. Social protection is often interpreted as having a broader character than institutional social security.
The purpose of the study is to understand workers’ access to social protection inside and outside the workplace within the civil society sector in Lebanon and help identify possible room for interventions and enhancements.
