Sylvana Lakkis Interview

Interview by LCPS Senior Researcher Fadi Nicholas Nassar with Sylvana Lakkis, the acting President of the Lebanese Union for People with Physical Disabilities and Chairperson of the Regional Arab Bureau of Disabled People’s International (DPI). She is also the second vice president of DPI. The interview below highlights the gaps in Lebanon’s approach to social protection and the particular exclusion of people with disabilities in a time of accentuated crisis. In doing so, it underscores the urgency and necessity of centering people with disabilities in the formulation, organization, and implementation of any approach to social protection and social assistance in the country.
