Lebanon: Addressing the Legacy of Conflict in a Divided Society

In 2011, to help open new possibilities, ICTJ initiated a multiyear project—under the name “Addressing the Legacy of Conflict in a Divided Society”— aimed at sparking debate on how to break the cycle of political violence in Lebanon and bring about accountability, the rule of law, and sustainable peace.

Funded for two years by the European Union and then Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung, the project has produced four publications and multiple events on the wars of Lebanon, seeking greater clarity on: What happened? How has the government responded? How are people affected? And what does Lebanese civil society think should be done?
