Global Studies discussion looks at Lebanon: The Phoenix with clipped wings
Thirty years after the end of the civil war, Lebanon is facing four concurrent crises that risk plunging the country into oblivion. Over the past year, Lebanon has faced a political crisis, a financial and currency crisis, an economic crisis, and a rampaging health crisis as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic. In this talk, Ziad Al Achkar, (George Mason University) will discuss how the latest development in Lebanon finds roots in the design of the Lebanese political system, and the role regional dynamics play in influencing Lebanon’s future. This online event is on Oct. 23, 2020, at Noon. See more including a link to join this event at the Center for Civic Engagement website.
