Representing Leadership for Sustainable Development – LSD, with leaders from the Middle East and North Africa Region (MENA), Mr. Michel Daccache shared his Lebanese point of view regarding the importance of the political parties and the civil society organizations in developing the society at the Middle East Partnership Initiative (MEPI) office in Washington D.C.
Daccache presented his research study made with the International Federation for Electoral Systems (IFES) entitled: "Youth in Politics".
This research targeting the Lebanese youth in politics and their participation in the decision-making process showed that there's a lack of political awareness on the youth level and misunderstanding of their political rights and duties.
Therefore, LSD provided the step by step strategy to raise the political awareness of the Lebanese youth toward a better understanding of democracy and human rights.
