Webinar: “Conversations from Beirut: The Domestic Implications for Lebanon of the Regional Rehabilitation of Assad’s Syria and the Saudi-Iranian Rapprochement”
IFI in collaboration with the Global Engagement Initiative and as part of the BOBST-AUB Collaborative Initiative’s “Conversations with Beirut” series, a webinar was held on April 18 titled “The Domestic Implications for Lebanon of the Regional Rehabilitation of Assad’s Syria and the Saudi-Iranian Rapprochement.”
The webinar featured IFI Director Joseph Bahout along with Dr. Salam Fayyad, Visiting Senior Scholar and Lecturer in Public Policy and Daniella Lipper Coules ’95 Distinguished Visitor in Foreign Affairs at the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs at Princeton University. The discussion centered on how the recent reconciliation between Syria's Assad regime and regional powers, alongside the thawing of Saudi-Iranian relations, would impact Lebanon domestically.
