“Rule of Law Rules” is our new podcast on Rule of Law in the age of digitalization from the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung.

He was a member of the Lebanese Parliament between 2009 and 2020 and during this time he was the head of the Technology Committee of the Lebanese Parliament. In August 2020 he resigned from the parliament. Furthermore, Nadim Gemayel is the president of the Bachir Gemayel Foundation and founder of the NGO Achrafieh 2020.
