Crisis and Control, (In)formal Hybrid Security in Lebanon

Organization: Lebanon Support

This report aims to analyze how formal and informal security providers implement
their respective social order agendas through a security “assemblage”. It also aims
to inform the debate on refugee protection and security provision in urban settings,
in the context of Lebanon’s hybrid security system. The accounts collected illustrate
how state security institutions tacitly accept – or even rely on – informal security
actors, managing at times to achieve their political and strategic goals through
decentralized and/or illegal forms of control.
