The Institute of World Affairs is engaged in a multi-year project to assist in the reconciliation and return of displaced villagers to their homes in a region east of Beirut, Lebanon. The project addresses the aftermath of armed conflict between Christian and Druze peoples during the Lebanese civil war (1975-1991). Before the civil war they had coexisted peacefully in the region, but during the armed conflict the Christian villagers were expelled. This report covers the projectxe2x80x99s objectives, the status of the project, regional implications of the project, and potential future activities.
