The Academy for Citizenship Training (AFC-USJ), which is affiliated to the Faculty of Humanities and the Faculty of Law and Political Science, and in partnership with The Tamari Foundation, ALAM-Suisse and Fondation Diane, is launching Lebanon’s first University Diploma in Civic Engagement and Initiative. This pioneering program meets the vital need for youth to prepare for the Lebanon of tomorrow. It aims at engaging USJ students in innovative civic initiatives, ingeniously taking advantage of Lebanon’s diversity and aiming for the transition from a sectarian and clientelist political system to a social contract based on fundamental human rights. This UD, which promotes the fundamental values of merit, freedom of expression, equality of all before State and judicial institutions, aims at revisiting classical approaches to citizenship, examining new experiences in democratic societies, and reimagining the Lebanese social contract.
The training features interactive courses, seminars, conferences and congresses, alongside specialists in civic matters and guest lecturers addressing topical themes in the field.
