Sammanfattning

Two decades have passed since the end of the Lebanese civil war. The young generation has not experienced war but the social and political system in which they live is still influenced by the power-sharing mechanisms that ended the war. Power-sharing mechanisms protect the Lebanese diversity but further divide society along sectarian lines and affect the possibility of building a united society. In this article the visions of Lebanese university students are analysed to reveal what social and political systems they consider legitimate for Lebanon. The article argues that the current power-sharing system can remain legitimate since it provides security, which is crucial for the acceptance of the system. At the same time a united Lebanese identity is preferred by all students. By juxtaposing power-sharing democracy with a society of conviviality this article uncovers several dilemmas for post-conflict societies. The article concludes that to establish long-term peace the social and political systems cannot be viewed separately but must be analysed in relation to each other.
