Dr Fawaz Gerges

With 18 officially recognised sects, more than 400,000 Palestinian refugees and its proximity to Israel and Syria, Lebanon has frequently become embroiled in violent clashes between various regional rivals. 

The complicated politics of this tiny but diverse nation baffles even those within the region. 

On Monday's Riz Khan, Dr Fawaz Gerges joins a panel of experts as we unravel the web of Lebanon's political landscape, the current crisis involving Fatah al-Islam and the Nahr El Bared refugee camp and the larger implications for Lebanon and the region.
