On 14th November 2018 the Netherlands Assistance to Lebanese Border Agencies (IBM) project delivered a lecture to 65 staff and students from the Lebanese University, Centre of Languages and Translation. Delivered by the project's national staff, the lecture discussed the realities of working in international organisations in order to prepare students, over 90% of whom are women, for their impending emergence onto the job market. Funded by the Netherlands and implemented by ICMPD, this activity was another demonstration of efforts to improve engagement with Lebanese youth and academia in tandem with ongoing state agency-focused capability building.
