The Lebanese Citizen Foundation
Mission and objectives
The Citizen Foundation is a platform for strategic thinking and influence. It is a high quality reference in the production of public policy options, as well as studies and analyses focusing on Arab countries. Combining the functions of a “think tank” and a “do tank”, the Foundation deals with subjects upstream with the parties concerned, then proposes clear and structuring choices in the short, medium and long terms, to finally create and organize the debate downstream. It is always mindful of bringing the youth into the process.
Established in Lebanon and intended to support the challenges in this country, its action covers the Arab world, and extends to relations with Europe and its institutions.
The Lebanese Citizen Foundation is a non-profit Lebanese organization based in Beirut and authorized by the Ministry of Interior and Municipalities.
Its President is Riad Solh, a respected figure in Lebanon, and its director is Alain Bifani, former director general of the Ministry of Finance and well-known figure in the international financial institutions.
Its fields of research are Economics, Governance, Public Policies, European Neighbourhood, Migration and Employment, Taxation and Inequalities, and Anticorruption.
