814. Lebanon with Hannah McCarthy

Joining me this morning is Beirut based Irish journalist, Hannah McCarthy to discuss the fallout from Sunday’s Lebanese election. She outlines how the parliament is divided in more ways than just religious divisions and what that means for a functioning government.
We discuss the economic crisis, how Lebanese officialdom is profiting from the EU’s refugee ‘Pay to Stay Away’ policy and Hannah explains the way Palestinians are excluded from participating in Lebanese democracy, parts of the society and its systems. A great listen.
