  Lecture-Marking Sense of Lebanon Today  
(Academic)

While the currency, fiscal, and infrastructural crises were central to the making of Lebanon's 2019-20 uprising, they have nevertheless outlasted what was a historic moment of popular mobilization. Relatedly, the COVID-19 pandemic both exacerbated existing dynamics while also providing respite to the government and some of the traditional political parties. As parliamentary elections are scheduled for May 2022, activists have been split on whether and how to engage a process that in the past has yielded little in the way of strategic gains or structural change. The presentation engages these complexities to take stock of the current political field in Lebanon in general, and the efforts for meaningful changes within it.

Dr. Ziad Abu-Rish is Director of the MA Program in Human Rights and the Arts, and Visiting Associate Professor of Human Rights, at Bard College.
