Lebanese University Newsroom Upcoming Events

Here are the main events we’ll be focusing on over the next few months. In this capacity, we typically offer ‘live coverage’ and engagement with the event via social media platforms, to disseminate discussion more widely but also draw in conversation from outside. We gather materials and photos for more involved summaries and commentary, structured print and video interviews, and photographic galleries post event. You can read more about past conferences and events we have covered here.

If you have an event coming up and like what you see here, please get in touch so we can discuss covering your event. We look forward to hearing from you!
