Bucerius Ph.D. FellowClientelism, State and Citizenship in Lebanon
This research aims to investigate the effects that clientelism has on the ways that citizenship and statehood are conceptualized in post-war Lebanon. Through an analysis of different policy fields, including security and social welfare, this study explores the relations of state and non-state actors in the provision of public services. The research intends to illuminate how these relations affect state-society bonds and statehood in Lebanon.
