Lebanon: A Country of Emigration and Immigration

Beirut, Lebanon

“Lebanon is a multi-confessional republic. It is characterized by a sectarian power-sharing structure that arose as a result of its history, which is filled with sectarian and communal power struggles. Consequently, Lebanon has struggled for years on end to deal with human loss and brain drain as a consequence of continual emigration, in addition to an influx of refugees and asylum seekers resulting from Lebanon’s location in a region riddled with conflict and war.”¹  

...

A long list of tragedies…

Every generation living in Lebanon has been traumatized and every newborn bears the scars of old wounds. There is a long list of tragedies in this land:  Wars, civil wars, conflicts, ruined cities, political crises, social discord, occupations, attacks, massacres, bombings, assassinations, riots, uprisings, terrorism.

...

Beirut, the city of rich history, sadness, delicious foods, chaos and beautiful people has always achieved to be reborn from its ashes. The Romans, Arabs, Crusaders, Mamelukes, Ottomans and French. Each culture, each race and each religion has left a track on these lands. This secular country where people from 18 sects of different religions live together, is also a place where thousands of people died only because of belief differences for 15 years a futile, bloody civil war occurred.
