Type of Organisation:
LAH aims at encouraging continuous learning for different age groups as a way to build learners’ critical thinking, shape their personalities and develop a sense of individual and collective responsibility. Alongside working on several projects that aim to foster history teaching, on 18 – 19 June 2013, LAH organized a series of presentations on approaches to “Teaching and learning the civil war”. LAH partnered with the Centre for Lebanese Studies, the Finnish Institute in the Middle East, the Open Society and the Center for Arab and Middle East Studies at American University Beirut. The presentations took place at the American University of Beirut and were attended by 90 history teachers, activists, academics, and researchers.
