Date: Thursday 30 November 2023.
Time: 2:00pm Beirut/Jerusalem time / 12pm UK time.
The Centre for Lebanese Studies invites you to attend the webinar ‘The role of civil society in emergencies: Lebanon, and Occupied Palestine’.
We are witnessing a high level of disengagement of civil society in our region from the genocide that is taking place in Palestine. This silence and disengagement pause questions around our work ethics, responsibilities, ethos and roles as institutions and individuals in these spaces.
Through this webinar, we will have a conversation and open the space to critically engage with key institutions in the region to discuss the roles of civil society institutions, especially those in the field of education, and their responsibilities and how we can ethically move forward tackling issues of funding, solidarity, and impact.
