In 1943, Lebanon created a power sharing agreement that allocated political positions based on religion, politicizing the rich diversity of the country. The simmering tensions and population shifts between the main religious and ethnic groups within Lebanon eventually culminated in 1975 in a 15-year civil war. Today, Lebanon hosts a newly reborn democracy that still struggles with religious and ethnic divides. We first worked in Lebanon in 1996 and opened up a permanent office in 2008. After enormous growth, we now address conflicts arising within Lebanon’s already diverse society, tensions resulting from the increasing influx of Syrian refugees, security sector reform, and women’s socio-economic empowerment. For each issue, we seek to engage all stakeholders and strengthen local capacities in order to create sustainable change and increased social cohesion.
