Stability or disorder? The Middle East seen from Beirut

Lebanon is one of the key countries in the Middle East for peace and stability. It is a country founded by Christians, in which there has been a true democracy and religions have managed to coexist peacefully.
The Foundation for the Social Promotion of Culture recently held a meeting where its main theme was the role of Lebanon in the midst of the complex Middle East policy. Monsignor François Eid of the Maronite Patriarchate before the Holy See, and Professor Nicola Pedde, Director of the Institute for Global Studies, were two of the featured speakers.
