AMMAN — HRH Prince Hassan on Sunday highlighted the need to return to the “Arab renaissance” concept which placed morality and ‎plurality first and foremost.

Attending a lecture delivered by former Lebanese media minister Tarek Mitri at the Lebanese embassy in Amman, Prince Hassan stressed that building democratic institutions requires individuals’ contributions to serious projects, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.

Mitri, at the lecture dubbed “The rough road towards democracy”, said the past century was dominated by ideologies based on participation, patriotism and equality, which all were evident in the Great Arab Revolt.
