Real-Time Monitoring and Mapping of Intra-Lebanese Tensions
Triangle currently provides a comprehensive real-time monitoring and mapping of intra-Lebanese tensions for the United Nations Development Programme in Lebanon. The monitoring project informs national and local decisions on possible prevention and mitigation measures to community tensions in Lebanon, as well as providing suggestions for in depth academic research themes.
For this project, Triangle critically examines the precise definition of ‘social tensions,’ moving beyond the traditional dominant frameworks for understanding social tension in Lebanon. Due to the political and economic crisis which has unfolded since October 2019, social dynamics in Lebanon are changing, creating new vectors of social tension. This project define and categorise these new multiple vectors of social tension, through a novel “Typology of Tension.”
