Radio Program the "The Constitution for All"

Moderated by Dr. Marie Ghantous

In October 2020 the Rule of Law Programme Middle East / North Africa has launched its new weekly radio program “The Constitution for All” which airs each Thursday live on Radio Liban. Hosted by Dr. Marie Ghantous, law professor and legal expert, the program receives renowned constitutional experts to provide entertaining insights on constitutional topics and developments, answering questions and comments received from the audience over the Phone, WhatsApp and Social Media!

The Lebanese Constitution, as the vast majority of contemporary constitutions, describes the basic principles of the state, the structures and procedures of the government, but also the fundamental rights and freedoms of citizens that cannot be changed by an ordinary legislative act. Still too often Citizens have little knowledge about the rights and duties stipulated in the Constitution.

In this light, Dr. Marie Ghantous interviews each week a legal expert on different constitutional topics and developments, shedding light on legal notions and giving the public the possibility to submit their questions live during the show.
