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.
