Intellectual Foundations for a Free and Virtuous Society

Devos Place, Grand Rapids, Michigan, United States | 19-06-2018

Lebanon has 18 recognized sects, including Christian, Shia, Sunni, and Druze. Since the country’s independence in 1943, seats in the Lebanese parliament have been allocated by sect and most Lebanese political parties are religious by nature. Ms. Kristelle Mardini, LIMS director and Dr. Patrick Mardini attended the annual Acton University to learn more about the relation between religion and sound, market-based economics in efforts of promoting a virtuous and non-violent society in Lebanon. The four-day event brought together distinguished scholars, leaders, and entrepreneurs from the USA and abroad.
