The civil war in Lebanon

This learning activity focuses on enabling students to understand the complex causation of the civil war that erupted in Lebanon between 1975 and 1990.

This enquiry is part of a larger unit that covers the civil war period.
Although this period is still absent from the national history curriculum in Lebanon, that was not reformed after the war, the Lebanese Association for History embarked on a process of experimentation to address questions raised by the youth about the war and its causes.

In the absence of textbooks covering the civil war period, we decided to provide students with a rich collection of resources that help them to understand the complexity of the causes leading to fifteen years of war.
