On May 15th, Lebanon's citizens will head to the polls amidst a national economic meltdown, described by the World Bank as one of the three most severe crises seen witnessed since the 1950s.

The stakes for these elections are high, but the casted ballots are unlikely to have a concrete impact on Lebanon’s political landscape. In what kind of conditions are the Lebanese citizens heading to the polls? What political and economic challenges lie ahead? What is the impact of the Ukraine war on Lebanon's fragile food security? And how are external actors reacting to Lebanon’s multifold crisis?
