Lebanon has a new government, but the country is falling deeper into crisis. On the 22nd of November, the day the country famed for its cedar trees should be celebrating its independence, Lebanese people are struggling to have faith in their future. Why has Lebanon not been able to break free from this spiral of chaos? Is Lebanon a failed state? Historian Jihane Sfeir, chair of the Arab world at the Institute for European Studies at the ULB in Brussels, will speak about these issues during an evening lecture with Gaïdz Minassian.
