for those who are interested here is the brief that is published on the undp website:
Corruption was the first instigator for the Arab revolutions; will it be an agent for change in Lebanon? Or is it rooted deeply in the political system and public administration where its beneficiaries are many and therefore difficult to eradicate? Corruption in Lebanon has reached alarming levels of damage to the needs and fundamental rights of citizens, such as water, health and education reaching a state where citizens are serving the interests of politicians. Lebanon is mired in a crisis of its political system and the legitimacy of all institutions in the last period of time spanning in nearly a decade, posing an urgent need to break the current situation through a radical change in the political system eliminating the risk of engaging in internal violence.
