The intervention will be later debated with neighborhood residents in focus groups. Based on a clear analysis and understanding of on-going trends in Mar Mikhael (provided by SJC team), we expect the consultant to review similar case studies in other national contexts (i.e., desk review) and propose possible housing intervention strategies (including forms of interventions, types of regulations, and the institutional mechanisms that could be set in place to implement them). The consultant is not required to join the SJC fieldwork team in verifying and adapting the proposal s/he has made.

About the Social Justice and the City Program
The aim of the Issam Fares Institute's Social Justice and the City Program is to formulate an agenda for research that establishes a partnership between scholars, policy-makers, and activists in Lebanon (and beyond) working towards more inclusive cities. The program seeks to act as a platform where scholars, policy-makers, and activists can share reflections, experiences, and strategies by (i) documenting, analyzing and reflecting on ongoing urban processes affecting the organization and life of the city, (ii) sharing and validating research with activists, affected communities, and other social groups who are potentially interested in sharing both the acquired competence and the pool of research tactics, and (iii) supporting and informing initiatives that hope to influence change through debates, media, publications, and advocacy.
