In 2018, the EFF organised a fact finding mission to Lebanon to investigate the possibility to become active in this country. After this mission, the EFF concluded that the political system in Lebanon is stuck, but also saw an opportunity to contribute to the democratic development of the country by conecting representitives of civil society with the political parties. In Lebanon, the EFF works together with the Robert Schuman Institute (RSI). Next to that, the EFF organises trainings with the Kataeb party, an EPP observer member. The EFF organises projects for youth and women from civil society in Lebanon.
