Divided by Sects, IDs, and Checkpoints: Lebanon at the Start of the Civil War


Chair: Naser Al-Fawakhiri

My name is Naser Al-Fawakhiri and I’m a sophomore here at Princeton studying Psychology, with certificates in Neuroscience and Cognitive Sciences. When I’m not trying to get into people’s heads, I play trumpet with Triangle Club, Princeton’s amazing touring theater group (I can prop them up right? I’m just a lowly trumpet!) and I’m also on the Princeton Model UN team. My other interests include physics (yes I’m a nerd, what did you expect?), epistemology, and Arabic dramas.

Crisis Director: Dina Kuttab

Hi! My name is Dina, and I'm a junior at Princeton from Amman, Jordan. I'm majoring in Near Eastern Studies and planning on getting a certificate in Creative Writing. On campus, I'm a tour guide, involved with the Honor Committee, a Residential College Advisor, and a member of our Model UN Team. My interests mainly revolve around the history and politics of the Middle East, so I'm super excited to be chairing a committee on the Lebanese Civil War, an incredibly interesting and complex topic. In my free time, I like to do crossword puzzles, watch bad reality TV, and do karaoke.
