Multiculturalism

Multiculturalism is the appreciation, understanding, acceptance, mutual respect, inclusion and working together to build united communities; Lebanon which is formed by a mosaic of 19 religions and cultures, is a typical example of the Multicultural Society.

Multiculturalism is seen as a fairer system that allows people to truly express who they are within a society, that is more tolerant and that adapts better to social issues. They argue that culture is not one definable thing based on one race or religion, but rather the result of multiple factors that change as the world changes.
