​Based on surveys of Lebanese students at the Lebanese University and the American University of Beirut during the period 1993–1996, Dr. Faour concludes that a normative transformation in social values of the Lebanese youth is taking place, notably in the direction of individualism and gender equality. A more far-reaching silent revolution that is seeping through society is the rise in democratic practices within the Lebanese nuclear family at the expense of authoritarianism.
