Abstract

This paper is a study of how people in Ras Beirut are coping at a time of severe economic crisis. During Zainab Alawieh’s research, which took place between April and September 2021, she roamed around different neighbourhoods within the Ras Beirut area – Hamra, Ain Tineh, Raouche and Qouraitem – and conducted more than 40 surveys with residents and business owners, discussing how their livelihoods were affected by the economic collapse and high unemployment that Lebanon is going through.
