Over the past year, images of dramatic sea crossings to Europe focused international attention on Syria's refugee crisis. But the vast majority of those fleeing Syria's civil war, including the most vulnerable, remain in the Middle East, living marginal existences with uncertain futures. More than one million of those Syrians are currently living in limbo in Lebanon, which now hosts more refugees per capita than any other country in the world.
