After Jordan, it was time to move on to the next location – Beirut. Lebanon’s capital provided ample opportunities for meetings with students and professionals alike. We met with investigative journalists starting their own think tanks. We talked to countless enthusiastic students at institutions such as USJ, LAU, Lebanese University, and USEK. We promoted our training programmes, talked about how to improve upon them, and got some fascinating insights about Lebanon’s journalism scene. In short – it was an incredibly successful visit (and that’s before we start mentioning Lebanese food!)
Beirut, it’s been great. Thanks so much for hosting us. Thank you to all the universities and think tanks who invited us into their premises! And finally, thanks so much to the EU Delegation to Lebanon for their amazing on-the-ground support that made this trip as successful as it was!
