Marwa El Chab (EHESS) is a Ph.D. candidate in anthropology studying the Lebanese presence in West Africa with a special focus on entrepreneurship. Her mother’s work with Syrian refugees in Lebanon inspired her to voice this specific experience into the academic world.

Based on sociological guidelines and on a collection of empirical data, Marwa offers a look into the world of educational programs by taking one specific NGO based in Lebanon as an example. Confrontations between social workers, conflicts among the refugees, the understanding of their situation and their struggles to overcome victimisation are daily challenges. At the WorldWeberCafé “Flüchtlinge in der Stadt”, Marwa will discuss the role of children’s education in times of conflict. In the case of this particular conflict, school is not only a mean to keep children safe of exploitation. Furthermore, it has been widely accepted now by the UN, the Lebanese government and different partners acting in the region, that it has an important political target: Education is the best weapon we have today against obscurantism. Therefore, education means not only protection for the children, it means protection for all of us.
