Education on Coexistence
This book, in Arabic language, tackles the question of Education on Diversity in a diverse society such as Lebanon, where it is imperative that educational policies be linked to religious and cultural diversity as well as to citizenship and civic values, so that communal identities do not swallow the national identity.
