On June 22, 2022, iAffairs Canada hosted a virtual panel discussion to explore and address the future of Lebanon following the recent parliamentary elections and the upcoming presidential election.

Watch the video here.

The panellists had an insightful discussion, and a very engaging ‘Q&A’ period followed, covering a range of themes, including democracy & governance, economic deterioration, human development, refugee & migration, conflict resolution, and security.

The speakers examined pressing issues currently facing Lebanon and explored robust policy avenues to transition the nation from its current state of fragility to enhanced stability. The panel featured Dr. Lama Mourad, Barrister Stephen Stanton, Prof. May Rihani, Dr. Atif Kubursi, and Dr. Hani Faris. Hadi Wess, Managing Director at iAffairs Canada, moderated the discussion.

This event is presented by iAffairs Canada, the Canadian Foreign Policy Journal, the World Lebanese Cultural Union, and is supported by the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs.
