The US-Lebanon Dialogue Program encourages productive US-Lebanon relations, promotes discussion on Lebanon in Washington, and supports initiatives that strengthen Lebanese independence and sovereignty. Because a prosperous Lebanon is vital to peace in the Middle East, the Program also supports initiatives that advance Lebanese political reform, economic development, and social progress.
Launched in 2008, the U.S.-Lebanon Dialogue Program is a partnership between the Aspen Institute and the Lebanon Renaissance Foundation (LRF). LRF seeks to promote democratic governance, economic dynamism, and the rule of law in Lebanon. This mission fits the Aspen Institute’s focus on building trust, enhancing stability and development, and improving prospects for peace in the region.
