Abstract

Émile Éddé had consistently paid close attention to the definition of the frontiers of the Lebanese Republic. Ever since his participation to the Peace Conference in 1918, till the end of his presidential mandate, he stated that it was not important to defend the “Petit Liban” as it existed during the Mount-Lebanon Mutasarrifiya and the Règlement Organique of 1864, nor was it to create a “Grand Liban” as delimited by General Gouraud on 1st September 1920. Until 1932, Émile Éddé developed an entirely new conception of the frontiers and the functioning of the Lebanese Republic. This article offers a study of the historical context as well as the different power stakes that lead to his change of thought which, in turn, lead to the signature in 1936 of the « Traité d’Alliances et d’Amitié franco-libanais » during his presidency.
