Also available in Deutsch

From the 1st to the 7th of November 2017, the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung organized a conflict resolution training for officers of various units of the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) in cooperation with the LAF’s Department of Civil-Military Cooperation (CIMIC), carried out by the Lebanese Association for Mediation and Conciliation (LAMAC). Given the changing role of the LAF facing multiple challenges to Lebanon`s internal and external security, CIMIC has been established in 2015.

Conflict Resolution Training

Lebanon still finds itself in an ongoing tense regional surrounding and is also confronted with continuous internal challenges, such as more than one million refugees from Syria and a changing political environment.

The Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung in Beirut is committed to Germany`s support for Lebanon and its institutions to further deepen the dialogue and the partnership with the country. Regarding this issue the Lebanese Armed Forces as a partner – in many regards - stand out: as a partner in the Global Coalition to Defeat the Islamic State and other terrorist organizations, the LAF is at the forefront of fighting extremism and terrorism. As a nationally unifying force, the LAF acts as a role model of integration and identity for the society and its citizens and is thus the only true and legitimate defender of Lebanon.
