The critical voices of these donor projects have been loud in the past months.
Against this backdrop, KAS and the Beirut Reconstruction Monitor of the IFI Institute hosted a debate reflecting the history of international aid in Lebanon, the impact of it and lessons learnt for the future. This discussion aimed to further define the framework of foreign aid: what can it realistically achieve, and what are its limitations?
Dr. Nasser Yassin, Associate Professor at the American University of Beirut and founder of the AUB Crisis Observatory, Ziad Abdel Samad, Executive Director of the Arab NGO Network for Development , Dr. Sami Attalah, Director of LCPS and Assaad Thebian, Executive Director of the Gherbal Initiative, engaged in a lively discussion round that was moderated by Financial Times correspondent Chloe Cornish.
