This webinar will attempt to pull back the analysis of the current crisis and delve into questions related to the legitimacy of the Lebanese state, the role of the Lebanese leaders throughout history, the current unprecedented levels of the leaders’ selfishness and ignorance, and the resulting outcomes. This analysis is crucial not only for understanding Lebanon’s trajectory but also for assessing potential future governance options for Lebanon.
