The Lebanese Association for History (LAH) with the Centre for Lebanese Studies, and the Department of History and Archeology presented a panel titled ‘The Strife for the History Curriculum: The Case of Lebanon and England’ at the American University of Beirut in March 2015 . The panel featured two presenters Christine Counsell, University of Cambridge, and Simon Abdel Massih, Lebanese University.  Counsell who focused on “History Teachers as Curriculum Makers: the Shaping of England’s National Curriculum for History, 1991 to 2014” explained how history teachers succeeded in pushing their way into the making of the curriculum by changing their role to curricular thinkers. Abdel Massih who focused on the “Making of the Lebanese History Curriculum in Lebanon during the Transitional Period” pointed out to the failure to produce a national curriculum in Lebanon. He highlighted conflictual issues and how these issues evolved since independence and more specifically in the post war era.
