Toward a Citizen’s State
Toward a Citizen’s State is the fourth National Human Development Report (NHDR) for Lebanon. Work commenced on this current report at the end of 2005 in partnership with the Council for Development and Reconstruction (CDR). Citizenship is the primary theme of this report which addresses citizenship and the sectarian state, and the relationship of the state, its institutions, its constitution including personal status laws to citizen. It also focuses on socio-economic citizenship rights and considers social policies from the view-points of citizenship rights and comprehensive social development. In addition to that, the report looks into citizenship, culture, education and communal identities.
