More than a quarter of Syrian refugees in Lebanon do not feel safe, and almost the same number reported that a member of their family had suffered some kind of assault since arriving in the country, according to a survey conducted by Universite Saint-Joseph.The survey, which polled 1,200 Syrian refugees across the country, showed that security, followed by money and paperwork, were the biggest concerns for Syrians in Lebanon. Remarkably, nearly 70 percent of the refugees who participated in the survey said they were in the country illegally, with most saying they were unable to pay the registration fees or find a Lebanese citizen to sponsor them as stipulated by new rules the state instituted in January. Alsharabati said Syrian refugees responded differently to Lebanese and Syrian researchers.
