Zwei Jahre Revolution: viel Krise, wenig Hoffnung

Trotz einer neuen Regierung kämpft der Libanon mit alten Problemen und die Sorge vor Gewalt wächst. Wie steht es um die Aussicht auf politischen Wandel?

Am 17. Oktober 2021 jährte sich die libanesische „Thawra“, der Ausbruch von Massenprotesten, zum zweiten Mal. Wenig hat sich seitdem zum Besseren gewendet. Die Hoffnung auf einen grundsätzlichen politischen Systemwechsel hat sich weitgehend zerschlagen. Das Land befindet sich in einer dramatischen wirtschaftlichen Krise. Die Eliten, die durch Jahrzehnte politischen Missmanagements und Korruption für die Probleme verantwortlich zeichnen, scheinen nach wie vor fest im Sattel zu sitzen. Bewaffnete Auseinandersetzungen am Rande von Protesten in Beirut haben jüngst in Erinnerung gerufen, wie fragil auch die Sicherheitslage ist. Nur wenn es der zersplitterten Protestbewegung gelingt, sich entlang politischer Programmatik zu organisieren, hat sie vor dem Hintergrund der angespannten Lage eine Chance, im politischen System zu bestehen.
