As protests currently take place in Lebanon, the world is forced to take notice of the plight of a nation that has been seen as a proxy at the hands of key players in the Middle East. One may wonder whether Lebanon’s battle with sectarian politics has ever reached a ceasefire stage.

In this interactive lecture, Mr Waltmans will provide an insight into the key challenges Lebanon faces, including the presence of over 1 million Syrian refugees. He will explain why the government of the Netherlands has decided to give a ‘focus country status’ to Lebanon. What does it mean to be a ‘focus country’ for the embassy? What results can be achieved?
