Lebanese psychoanalyst and activist Reina Milad Sarkis is heading an initiative to establish a Human Rights Ministry in Lebanon, in light of rising violations in the country.Though still at the proposal stage, the ministry would monitor infractions, promote human rights values, communicate and raise awareness, bridge gaps in NGO performance and manage the relationship between NGOs, the United Nations and the government.According to Sarkis, linking the ministry would not allow Parliament to closely monitor human rights issues.According to Sarkis, Lebanon's very active civil society springs from the government's absence in pressing human rights issues in the country.Sarkis has been focusing her research and working in human rights for nearly a decade.
