    Guest Producer/Host: Carolyn Coe

    Topics:
    Lebanon
    Palestinian refugees

    Writer, activist and professor in Lebanon, Rania Masri explains why Palestinian youth have a high drop out rate in UNRWA schools in the country. Among the reasons for drop outs is the ban on employment for Palestinians in many occupations. Masri also explores the idea of full citizenship and phantomized landmarks.

    Also in this program, we visit the Active Ageing House, where elders in the Borj el Barajneh camp in Lebanon find community as well as cultural and wellness support. At the center, we speak with Sahar Serhan and Mariam Sharqyeh; both are residents of the camp.
