Plural security provision in Beirut

Conflict Research Unit of Clingendael Institute and University of Amsterdam

Efforts to support or reform security arrangements in Beirut, and Lebanon more broadly, will need to contend with how current systems underpin and are underpinned by the political balance among Beirut’s main power brokers, namely, the key political parties.

This paper explores plural security provision in Beirut, where multiple state and nonstate actors assert claims on the legitimate use of force. It is aimed at an audience of research and policy community members concerned with strengthening security and stabilization policies in a manner that more accurately reflects local realities.
