Au Liban, piston pour l'emploi et clientélisme politique

Au Liban, piston pour l’emploi et clientélisme politique

What is alarming is the extensive role of political connections in finding jobs in the private sector. At least 20% of students say that they resort to political connections and 73% think that political connections are important to find jobs. Unlike their counterparts who use social connections, those who resort to political connections are not as well off but they have larger families and their fathers are more politically active. In other words, those who resort to political connections are capitalizing on their family’s electoral weight. Those who can deliver the votes to politicians in larger numbers seek jobs for their kids in return.
