Based on the KIP Project’s multistakeholder roundtables in its first year, the themes of discrimination and sexual harassment were identified as overlapping areas where knowledge-production and dissemination is needed within the Lebanese landscape.
Focusing on this theme, the two-day KIP multidisciplinary conference taking place on March 31 and April 1, 2017 at the Suliman S. Olayan School of Business at AUB aims to encourage multi-stakeholder dialogue about gender and sexuality, and more specifically, discrimination and sexual harassment in Lebanon. It hopes to support the production and dissemination of knowledge and generate policy recommendations around issues related to discrimination generally, and sexual harassment more specifically in the Lebanese landscape. Ultimately, it aims to build lasting networks which cut across disciplines and sectors.
Interested members from academia, civil society, private and public sector as well as independent researchers, students, activists, among other are invited to attend this two-day event.
