Assassination of Lokman Slim: homage from the academic community

Lokman Slim, 2019

The URMIS joins in the tribute paid by colleagues, friends and relatives to Lokman Slim, who was cowardly murdered in Lebanon in February 2021. Humanities and social scientists working in the Near East have regularly benefited from Lokman Slim’s work through Umam Research & Documentation, an association he co-directed with his wife Monika Borgmann. 

Lokman Slim was a man of culture and engagement. He paid a heavy price for his freedom of thought and his uncompromising freedom of speech.
