This briefing presents the findings of a qualitative research study on the current and retrospective effects of two peacebuilding projects implemented by Search for Common Ground with adolescents from refugee and host communities in Lebanon.

It explores the positive and negative gendered effects of peacebuilding project initiatives implemented by Search for Common Ground on Lebanese adolescents’ development trajectories in the short and medium term.

The briefing gives recommendations to organisations aiming to replicate the model of these peacebuilding projects. The findings also point to a number of programming implications, many of which resonate with the recommendations of the young people involved in the evaluation.
