Alerts, Background, and Reviews from and about Lebanon
Since 2019
A joint UMAM D&R and Hayya Bina project

On October 17, 2019, a popular uprising unfurled across Lebanon and brought hundreds of thousands of people into the streets, showing that the status quo was no longer tenable. In the weeks and months that followed, a myriad of social, political, and economic developments occurred, leading many to speculate over what was happening and in which direction the country was headed.

As UMAM D&R and Hayya Bina took stock of the "revolution," they felt that certain dimensions deserved further analysis and commentary, hence "Lebanon in Conflict" was launched. The semi-regular newsletters draw upon various sources and perspectives to highlight the latest developments of Lebanon's protracted uprising.
