In this special lecture, Rabil will walk you through the maps, challenges, threats and prospects surrounding what has become the most dangerous tri-border in the world. Based on field research trips – the recent of which was in Summer 2019 – and interviews with Lebanese, Syrians and Israelis, Rabil will underscore the danger of war as well as the prospects of stability in this highly tense and politically, militarily, and historically complicated area of the world.
