The first Euro-Mediterranean Youth encounter took place in Beirut from 28th April to 1st May 2007. It focused on "conflict prevention and peace building". This meeting ended with a highlight on the importance of dialogue and the necessity to understand everybody's needs in a conflict. These discussions took place while the rights of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon are being violated on a daily basis for decades. Véronique Rigot (CNCD) and Florent Sebban (Eurostep) report on the conditions of Palestinian refugees in Lebanon, while fighting continues around the Nahr Al Bared refugee camp in Northern Lebanon.
