|Monseigneur Camille Moubarak|
Kfarniss, Lebanon15 December 1947
Born December 15, 1947 in Kfarniss, Lebanon, Mgr. Camille Moubarak is a pedagogue, scholar, researcher, poet, writer, political activist, and Maronite priest. He is best known for his social and political doctrines conferred in Lebanon, for the maintenance of peace and social cohesion in a country torn by tensions and intercommunal strife. He is currently the Dean of the Doctoral School of La Sagesse University in Beirut, Lebanon.
Core of his Work[edit | edit source]
Reading the books of poetry of Mgr. Moubarak, one can easily sense the dominant harmony of the classical types of rhymes (end, internal, slant, rich, eyes or identical rhymes) respecting the sonic need of the listener. As for the content, Mgr. Moubarak combined French symbolism and German contemplation, making his poetry a school of thought that draws closer to philosophy, but not farther from romanticism. His poetry - rich in faith - calls on the reader to contemplate existence as it is.
His socio-political publications are clearly influenced by Jürgen Habermas and Alasdair MacIntyre without denying the principles of liberalism that acknowledge the existence of the individual before the state and the nation. They reflect a clear respect for what the school of Communitarianism stands for, stressing on the need of finding commonalities that bring people together for an acceptable and peaceful coexistence among minorities; especially after the massive migrations, the societies currently has no longer a single cultural face. These common denominators do not contradict the bill of human rights, but they consist of other foundations such as: respect of motherhood, uplifting of the disenfranchised, importance of child care, and safety of the environment. His motives in all that are to avoid all the causes of cultural conflicts that might lead to military stages. His reform-oriented ideas are in phase with those of the two Canadian Will Kymlicka and Charles Taylor.
Teaching Career[edit | edit source]
Mgr. Camille Moubarak started his educational journey at the Protestant Institute in Beirut, and the Lebanese League School, College Notre-Dame de Jamhour (Jesuits school), to end at La Sagesse Brasilia in Beirut. From a school teacher to a college professor at the Institute of Theology - University of St. Joseph (Jesuits order), and at La Sagesse University, Mgr. Moubarak taught anthropology, ethics, multiculturalism and political science. Topics already treated in many of his books to be mentioned later on.
He became the administrator of La Sagesse School in Beirut in 1987 (1987-1997), then La Sagesse School of Jdeideh, Metn, in 1997 (1997-1999), to end up as the President of Sagesse University between 2011 and 2015, as he served previously as Dean of the Faculty of Political Science and International Relations for fifteen years. In 2015 he received the Deanship of the Doctoral Institute at Sagesse University.
Revolutionary and innovator, he endorsed the shift from traditional educational system to a project-based one.
