December 18, 2003Citizenship Issues in Lebanon: Dimensions and Current Challenges
This workshop brought together academics, researchers, social scientists, educators, as well as legal experts and civil society leaders for a vigorous and honest public debate on how to improve citizenship building in Lebanon. Participants explored approaches and ways to overcome sectarianism in Lebanon, analyzed the role of various educational institutions in the political socialization of the Lebanese citizen, and discussed the continued weak representation of Lebanese women in political, administrative, and public life.
A publication on citizenship issues in Lebanon is expected by the end of 2004.
This workshop was held in collaboration with the Konrad Adenauer Foundation.
