Lebanese human sciences center boosts regional ties

BEIRUT: A cooperation and collaboration agreement was signed between Byblos’ International Center for Human Sciences and the Arab Institute for Human Rights Friday, a statement by the center said. 

The meeting was held at the institute’s headquarters in Tunis and is part of a set of partnerships that the center will hold with different research institutes. 

The parties have coordinated between each other to come up with a plan to build a graduate studies program in human sciences. 

The ceremony was attended by the Center’s and Institute’s presidents, Adonis al-Akra and Abdul Baset Bin Hasan, respectively, and by Arab League secretary-general’s assistant Abdellatif Abid, among others. 

The center, which operates under the auspices of UNESCO, has been developing its relationship with the civil society institutions of the Arab world, Middle Eastern countries and other regions.
