Moderator: Matthew Cebul, WCED postdoctoral fellow.

For nearly a year, Lebanon has been engulfed in crisis. Popular frustrations with government corruption boiled over into protest in October 2019, and have since been compounded by worsening economic collapse, the covid-19 pandemic, and most recently, the Beirut port explosion. This panel convenes in light of these ongoing events. Panelists will speak to the origins of Lebanese unrest, and identify pathways and obstacles towards recovery and reform.

Registration is required for this Zoom webinar at http://myumi.ch/88PnG.

Co-sponsored by the Center for Middle Eastern and North African Studies, Digital Islamic Studies Curriculum, and Global Islamic Studies Center.
