Alusta: Yhteiskunta- ja kulttuuritieteiden verkkolehti (2024)

Taavi Sundell’s article providing a brief overview of the tensions caused by the Gaza war in the relations between Israel and Lebanon, as well as Lebanon’s ability to cope with a potential broader armed conflict between Israel and the Hezbollah, has been published in Finnish and can be read here.

In this article, Sundell surveys the results from the heightened tensions up until now, particularly in Lebanon, discusses the possibilities of the conflict expanding, and provides background on the situation in Lebanon regarding its limited governance capacity amplified by the present exceptionally severe economic crisis.
