Sara Fregonese, Waiting for the spillover. Why reinforcing borders won’t strengthen Lebanon’s sovereignty and keep it out of conflict.

I wrote a piece for the journal EPD: Society and Space open site about UK aid and the current situation in Lebanon. Here are the main points:
– Cities, not borders, is where Lebanon’s sovereignty is at stake.
– We need to account for Lebanon’s hybrid sovereign formations.
– UK aid needs to move beyond quick-fixes and tackle Lebanon’s problematic relationship between the regular army and Hezbollah and the monopoly of political violence.
