Youth Against Corruption

The Lebanese Transparency Association
The Lebanese Transparency Association
Lebanon
If we considered young people to be between the age of 15 and 24, the first observation we can make is that Lebanese young people were born after the beginning of the war and sometime during the conflict (1975-1990) , thus, the term "war generation" is an appropriate one. The second conclusion, which is no less important, is that although the war is present in the consciousness of most youg people, none of them took part in it or likely even followed it, depending on a person`s political maturity. The war ended in 1990, when the oldest young person today was approximately 14 years old,. Therefore, the majority of young people reached political maturity after the war, they found themselves paying its price and suffering from its political, economic and social consequences.
