Worried Lebanese

thought crumbs on lebanese and middle eastern politics

A brief history of the zu’ama… or the archeolgy of the National Dialogue Table

Posted by worriedlebanese on 13/02/2007

Here is a short journalistic article I just finished on how the zua’ma overthrew the old system in 1958 and have been ruling ever since. I wrote it in French. But here are its main ideas:
– we traditionnaly analyse the power structure in Lebanon through the country’s insitutional structure, blaming the latter for all the flows we find in the former. This approach suits the political class because it withdraws all responsibility from them.
– I try to reverse this approach insisting that the power structure is not only independent from the institutional structure, but it also contradicts it.
