Exploring The Experience of Lebanese Canadians: Global Communal Resilience


The experience of Lebanese Canadians has not been explored in the resilience literature and this study serves to change that. By sharing your experience in coping with challenges as a Lebanese Canadian who is supporting/has supported (e.g., emotionally or financially) a family member or friend in Lebanon, you'll be contributing to a theory on global communal resilience. Currently, the literature focuses on a theory of resilience that is applicable to communities living in the same area, however I'd like to expand this theory to include Lebanese people living both in Lebanon and in Canada.
