Video for thought; a series of informative videos prepared by economists for non-economists

A series of short explanatory video tackling economic terms and concepts published by E-for Ektisad in collaboration with Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, Lebanon Office


Since 2021 “E-for-Ektisad” and Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung, Lebanon Office have joined forces and decided to launch an awareness and outreach campaign aiming at further articulating the knowledge of non-economists with a special focus on young population in Lebanon, especially those with a limited access to political and economic education.

The main objective of the campaign consisted on influencing the economic public policy discourse and contributing to socio-economic development, while introducing and explaining the main pillars of the social market economy models and supporting the general public in analyzing basic economic information in current and future economic scenarios and/or plans.

This cooperation resulted so far to the production and dissemination of the following videos:
