Promoting Peace In Lebanon Amidst Regional Instability

What is the impact on Lebanon of deteriorating regional stability, in particular Syria and the wider Arab Spring? How can the Lebanese put their own needs first - and how can international partners support them?

WASHINGTON, Dec. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Peacebuilding NGO Conciliation Resources is offering analysis and expert interview opportunities to members of the press about priorities to secure peace in Lebanon. It will present findings from its Accord publication, Positive Peace for Lebanon, to audiences in Washington, DC and New York from 11-14 December.

Overview:

Repeated outbreaks of violence since the end of the Lebanese civil war in 1989 show that a different approach is needed to build a more positive and lasting peace – one that all Lebanese benefit from.

Today, crisis in neighbouring Syria has again exposed Lebanon's vulnerability to external stresses. Regional phenomena of sectarian division, religious extremism and non-state armed actors all interface in Lebanon, compounded by international and regional tensions with Iran, and continuing volatility in the Occupied Palestinian Territories.

However, the enduring view of Lebanon as a victim of its regional circumstances has undermined efforts to strengthen its internal resilience. It is the Lebanese people who are responsible for shaping a peaceful future, and who should be both supported and held accountable for progress.

Accord 24 – Positive Peace for Lebanon:

Conciliation Resources' most recent Accord publication – 'Positive Peace for Lebanon' - reviews peacebuilding in Lebanon within the current context, examining its effectiveness and identifying opportunities and priorities for progress. It focuses on:

  • Reconciliation of a divided society including displaced and marginalised communities
  • Reform of a political system that embeds sectarian divisions and elite interests
  • Resilience to safeguard domestic priorities against regional hegemony and transnational dynamics

The publication includes more than thirty articles and interviews from diverse perspectives and disciplines. Together they show that the Lebanese are not just passive victims of a violent fate determined beyond their country's borders: many are eager for change and are actively exploring opportunities to achieve it.
