Creating Lebanon’s state of tomorrow

A conversation with Central Inspection President Georges Attieh and Siren’s Research Director Carole Alsharabati on the pathways to building an effective, accountable and transparent Lebanese state. 

In 2021, Lebanon’s long-neglected Central Inspection oversight agency deployed the country’s first e-governance system, IMPACT, revolutionising the way state services are provided to citizens. Since then, CI President Georges Attieh has emerged as a leading champion of reform from within the state. In this interview, we hear from Attieh and the Director of Siren’s GOAL project, Carole Alsharabati, about the pathway toward a modern, transparent Lebanese state, and the obstacles that must be overcome along the way.
