The yearly chosen topic relating to issues still relevant to this day is meant to guide students in their research process. The 2019 theme chosen by the Foundation related to ‘citizen and citizenship’ and was illustrated hereunder by the following quote from Michel Chiha:
“To strictly abide by our duty as a citizen is one robust resolution we could embrace. What is missing perhaps the most at the moment is a sense of public duty, a feeling for the common interest, an appreciation of the community. Whether it is obedience to the Laws, payment of taxes, or civic service in any form, we must submit to the necessary burdens imposed on us by life in society, and, at the same time, we must learn to take into account Lebanese characteristics when it comes to this life in society.”
