Lebanon Ideas Forum

The Lebanon Ideas Forum houses dialogue and analysis on the latest developments concerning Lebanon, its relations with the United States and implications on the wider Middle East region.

The Middle East Program's Lebanon Ideas Forum (LIF) fosters the exchange of ideas and discussions on the political, economic, and social developments pertaining to Lebanon, and its impact on the wider Middle East region and international community. The LIF aims to provide transatlantic and regional policymakers with unique perspectives and analysis on the ongoing challenges and opportunities facing Lebanon, as the country struggles to recover from one of the most severe economic recessions in history and an avalanche of political crises. The initiative is keen to identify policies that will help unlock Lebanon’s potential to develop the drivers of any successful society: inclusive politics, economic development, and a vibrant civil society.
