Friday 8.11 at 5pm: ‘Lebanon: the forgotten neighbour of Syria’ by Sadankomitea

 Please to visit us at: / Arkadia International Bookshop and “like” us if indeed you do!

Dear friend of Arkadia,

You are invited to “Lebanon: the forgotten neighbour of Syria” by Sadankomitea on Friday 8.11 at 5pm at Arkadia ( Nervanderinkatu 11).

The Committee of 100 in Finland regularly holds discussions on world conflicts. Lebanon is an example of a country where the societal situation is both acute and rarely discussed. The raging civil war in Syria threatens to spill over to Lebanon, and the flow of refugees is especially heavily felt in the small neighbouring country.

Media monitoring expert, activist Jad Lian and Middle East analyst Mikko Patokallio from Crisis Management Initiative will take the floor.

The language of the event will be English.


Warm regards,


Entrance is free but a donation of €3 (or more!) to fund the event is suggested and would be most welcome.
