Exploring Worldwide Democratic Innovations – A case study of Lebanon

This case study focuses on democratic innovations within Lebanon, a country renowned for its unique political landscape.

The case study looks at how organisations have used democratic innovations to cut across political divides and bring about policy changes, despite gridlocks and uncertainty. It explores several democratic innovations, each concerned with bringing about change in a different policy area – electoral integrity, electoral reform, and environmental policy. Moreover, we delve into how these innovations work and why they are relevant within Lebanon’s political context, and how they actively strengthen democracy.

The “Exploring Worldwide Democratic Innovations” project was supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung.
