TIME: 15:00 - 16:00 (Paris Time)
- Ziad Majed, Political Scientist and Associate Professor at AUP
- Jean-Pierre Filiu, Middle East history Professor at Sciences Po
- Nadim Houry, Executive Director, Arab Reform Initiative
In this webinar, part of our new “Re-imagining Lebanon” webinar series, Ziad Majed and Jean-Pierre Filiu will discuss France’s role in Lebanon and whether Macron can help Lebanon transition to a “new political contract” as he had stated back on his first visit. After the appointment of a new Prime Minister, what happens next? Will France be able to maintain pressure to achieve real change or will its ultimate ambitions be limited to a few superficial changes?
The webinar will be in French. No translation available.
