A panel discussion on the future of Lebanon was held. Originally the discussion was titled “Lebanon on the Brink.” However, in light of Lebanese leaders reaching an agreement

this week to end clashes between government-backed troops and forces controlled by Iranian-backed Hezbollah, the title was changed to “Lebanon Back from the Brink?”

Among other topics, panelists addressed the extent to which the agreement

will lead to a more stable Lebanon and who the winners and losers are. After their

discussion, panelists replied to audience members' questions. close
