Pathways to Lasting Justice: Addressing Genocide and Ending Human Rights Violations in the Middle East
AGBU Lebanon, in collaboration with IFI and Lepsius Haus Potsdam, held a webinar titled “Pathways to Lasting Justice: Addressing Genocide and Ending Human Rights Violations in the Middle East” on December 7, 2023 to coincide with the International Day of Commemoration and Dignity of the Victims of the Crime of Genocide and its Prevention. The webinar consisted of two panels, “The International Protection System in MENA” and its role in preventing, ending, and punishing human rights violations against minorities in the region, and “Media and Public Opinion” to highlight their role in ending all forms of human rights violations.
On December 6, 2023, IFI hosted the launch of the “Plight of the Rightless: The Sequel”, a report that mapped comprehensively statelessness of Beirut and Mount Lebanon for the first time. The research was conducted by Siren Associates and INTERSOS, and funded by the European Union.
