Ghassan Salame first rated Lebanon on the basis of geography, culture and institutions, and concluded with the necessity of eliminating communitarianism from the institutions. Sibylle Rizk described an ideal government program to pull Lebanon out of the crisis, while Diana Abbas detailed many impactful projects that her institution is carrying out from abroad. And finally, Pierre Duquesne provided a full program based on his long experience with Lebanon.
