Lebanon: An IMF Case Study

About the scholar: Abhishek Don Hemlani grew up in China and attended BASIS International School Guangzhou in Guangzhou, China.

The Research:

A massive explosion in the port of Beirut on August 4, 2020, killed 200 people and left 300,000 homeless. Pioneer scholar Abishek sees this disaster as the result of chronic negligence and corruption in the Lebanese government. He analyzes Lebanon’s current political, social, geopolitical, and economic risks with the goal of identifying critical areas that the IMF should address as it negotiates economic assistance and an action plan for the country. “Successful reform and recovery cannot occur without reforming the sectarian political system and changing attitudes,” he concludes, acknowledging that such systemic change is probably “out of the IMF’s domain.”

Project Title

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth.
