Les facteurs d'attractivité territoriale au service du développement au Liban : le cas du Akkar by Chadi Khneyzer( )

1 edition published in 2016 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lebanon knows nowadays a phenomenon against original-urban migration, while growing urbanization is rather the great feature of our world today. This has piqued our curiosity led us to investigate the causes of this dynamic in some Lebanese areas while others remain outside and suffer from underdevelopment. Such is the case of the region that is the subject of our research: Akkar, north Lebanon.To boost the region and trigger a process of territorial development, it is clear that agriculture must be aware of the concerns of the center of its predominance in the territory of Akkar and comparative advantages it provides.Several theoretical and empirical work highlights the virtues of the development of agriculture in terms of GDP growth and the fight against poverty and show that agriculture reacts faster than other sectors to new policies and contributes greatly to the GDP. Agricultural growth stimulates the whole economy because it creates markets for non-agricultural goods and services, producing a diversification effect of the economic base of rural areas. Thus the food industry and tourism will develop in line with a new vision for agriculture.Finally, the current weaknesses of Akkar economy can become opportunities if the multifunctional nature of the rural economy is sustainable development from a dynamic encompassing agriculture, agribusiness and tourism. Shares on the conditions of production (improving infrastructure, strengthening education and training, financial support and rational organization of production) involve state support. The actions of revitalization and recovery through a series of local development projects involve for their strong mobilization of local actors and decentralized for greater flexibility, especially in the management of decentralized cooperation projects

Le rôle des oligarchies communautaires dans le développement local : étude des représentations dans le caza de Jezzine by Jimmy Hajj( )

1 edition published in 2019 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Trois décennies ont passé depuis l'accord de paix entre les Libanais au terme de la guerre civile commencée en 1975. L'accord de Taëf a adopté l'application de la décentralisation administrative pour favoriser le développement local au Liban. Les conférences internationales de financement du Liban (Paris 3, CEDRE, ...) qui ont généré des dons et des prêts conditionnés à des réformes structurelles dont une nécessaire gouvernance locale fait partie afin de renforcer la participation des municipalités et des habitants.Ce développement économique des territoires régionaux libanais dépend du pouvoir des familles claniques féodales. Depuis des siècles, ces anciennes familles détiennent les ressources de production et ont la mainmise sur la gouvernance territoriale. Ces familles se partagent le territoire du Liban et leurs tractations conditionnent les règles d'une démocratie consensuelle. Chaque famille gouverne son fief et joue le jeu des influences politiques et de la protection de sa communauté confessionnelle pour influencer les instances politiques nationales. La logique communautaire de la société libanaise avec sa mosaïque de 18 groupes confessionnels répartis sur un petit territoire est entretenue par les familles claniques qui se présentent comme les protectrices de leur communauté. Le clientélisme est leur moyen de leur maintien au pouvoir. Dans cette perspective, ce système de gouvernance est devenu pour les politiciens un leurre sociopolitique.Notre thèse contribue à une lecture socio-politico-économique de l'influence de ces grandes familles sur le développement économique du caza de Jezzine.Dans le cadre de cette recherche on étudie l'application des notions de gouvernance territoriale, de décentralisation, des autorités traditionnelles ainsi que celle du développement économique local. Après une analyse de la littérature existante sur ces thèmes, nous avons conduit une analyse en deux volets afin de construire un modèle avec les variables impliquées dans le développement à Jezzine : une étude qualitative exploratoire par l'analyse d'entretiens avec des représentants de la société jezzinoise et une étude quantitative confirmatoire par questionnaire. Cette thèse éclaire la dynamique sociopolitique territoriale des familles claniques féodales à Jezzine, mais aussi les liens avec la gouvernance nationale. Le modèle final obtenu comprend 20 variables indépendantes et montre que ces grandes familles claniques forment une variable médiatrice pour expliquer le développement économique local du caza de Jezzine. Ceci nous permettra d'élaborer des pistes sur l'impact d'une telle démarche de décentralisation appliquée au Liban
Tourisme Religieux au Liban : stratégie pour un Développement Durable by Lily Moukarzel( )

1 edition published in 2019 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Religious tourism is the earliest form of tourism in the history of Mankind. Each year, millions of people travel around the world for different religious purposes at sacred places and holy sites are the most common destinations. Moreover giving the multitude of religions and their geographic and cultural distribution around the Globe, people are tempted to visit other countries and their spiritual journey may often result in an interaction with the “other” and may also change the perceptions of pilgrims, tourists and locals. Its new approaches contribute to broaden the tourist 'segment by combining pilgrims, art lovers, adventurers and “curious” visitors at the same religious site. Promoting a religious tourism as a strategy for sustainable development, implies the conservation of the heritage to be transmitted to the future generation, as well as the protection of the environment, without compromising the economic profit to the local communities.This essay stresses on the relationship between tourism and religious sites that are considered as part of the historical and architectural heritage. Lebanon boasts a large number of religious sites and may have acquired a new identity based on its cultural and religious diversity. However, this identity is actually undermined by several factors and interventions. Planning for sustainable tourism requires balancing the requirements of cultural heritage preservation, tourists and local community as is the case of Annaya -a village visited by 4,500,000 tourists each year - which has become an international destination thanks to “Saint Charbel”.This form of tourism is promoting a development and evolution on the social and economical levels and may hence be considered as prototype for religious tourism in Lebanon and it may consequently lead to some problems that can emerge such as the relationship or conflict of interest between the different actors of this form of tourism in Lebanon
Ski schools : An opportunity for rural mountainous areas to enhance sustainable territorial development the case of Kfarbedian "Mount Lebanon by Fares Faddoul( )

1 edition published in 2019 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this research is to illustrate and analyze whether the ski tourism in Kfardebian, a rural area located in Mount-Lebanon, would be capable of achieving a sustainable territorial and tourism development under a centralized governmental system, or whether decentralization would constitute the ultimate approach to realize a fruitful development for Kfardebian's tourism industry.Tourism nowadays is considered a major driver of development, constituting one of the most effective and leading pillars that can contribute directly to rural territorial development. Potential touristic areas usually trigger capital flow to investments in various service sectors, including heath, infrastructure, resorts and several other tourist-related services leading to significant increase in sales, profits and employment opportunities.This study investigates the fundamental relations between Tourism, Education, Economic Growth and Territorial Development of Kfardebian, with emphasis on ski tourism as a major attraction of tourists. Winter tourism, especially skiing-related services, is considered among one of the fastest rising industries nowadays, as it triggers economic growth and territorial development for rural areas thriving to boost their low performing economy during low tourism seasons.Lebanon, situated on the eastern shore of the Mediterranean Sea, heavily depends on tourism for its economic growth. The area of Kfardebian, the subject matter of this Thesis, demonstrates huge potential for the ski tourism in Lebanon, as it is located on a strategic mountainous area and possesses one of the utmost snow quality in the region. Kfardebian's snow is most valued for being capable of lasting throughout the whole winter season, hence creating a primary winter tourism destination for the whole Middle East. For that reason, boosting the tourism sector in Kfardebian will definitely lead to enormous economic growth that will produce a rewarding and sustainable territorial development.However, despite the government's declared intentions to develop Kfardebian's infrastructure, it remains short on achieving a remarkable improvement due to political motives and bureaucracy structure embedded under the centralized system currently in place in Lebanon. Such system requires that most of the essential decisions must be taken by state officials rather than by elected representatives.Nevertheless, the Municipality of Kfardebian, realizing the importance of ski as a main source of income for its inhabitants, is aiming to accomplish the finest sustainability for both its tourism industry and territory by allocating all its available resources towards developing and improving its infrastructure, while simultaneously raising the awareness among its population through educational programs highlighting the importance of preserving the area as a touristic attraction.For this main reason, Kfardebian's stakeholders are working tirelessly to modernize the available ski resorts, either by improving its infrastructure status, or by providing trainings and awareness programs to all personnel involved in the ski industry, whether they are regular employees or ski monitors or even the general population. On the other hand, international advertisement campaigns promoting Lebanon and Kfardebian as an international ski destination are being conducted throughout all tourism seasons on local and international media.Based on the above, a comprehensive strategy is highly recommended to ensure a sustainable territorial and tourism development at Kfardebian area, by which all involved parties and stakeholders are required to set efficient strategies, plans, educational programs, baselines and measurable targets regarding preserving security, health care and environment for the sole purpose of developing this area
Les Mobilités Culturelles et Touristiques comme Moyen de Développement Territorial : Les Cas de Byblos et de Baalbek au Liban by Rita Chaddad( )

1 edition published in 2019 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stimulating for the investigation of cultural and tourism mobilities and territorial disparities. The post-war period attests to the emergence of community cultures and the development of modalities of intercultural interactions based on the degree of similarity between local communities' and visitors' cultural dimensions, and is characterized by territorial development subject to community interests and political interventions. This dissertation investigates and compares locals/visitors interactions and territorial cultural systems between two Lebanese cities each with a distinct predominant community: Byblos of Christian majority and Baalbek of Muslim majority. Discourse analysis of multi-level stakeholders reveal conspicuous disparities between the two cities. The unanimity of Byblos stakeholders on territorial development oriented principally towards the valorization of cultural sites and the development of cultural tourism is countered by a marginal consensus among Baalbek stakeholders. SPSS analysis of 264 and 245 questionnaires distributed respectively via two qualitative surveys on four different categories (locals, Lebanese excursionists, Arab tourists, and international tourists) in Byblos and Baalbek unveils diverse modalities of interactions between locals and distinct categorical visitors in each of the two cities. In contrast to Baalbek, findings manifest considerable territorial governance among multi-level stakeholders, local communities, and visitors of Byblos, which in turn interprets the dynamic territorial development in the city. The dissertation emphasizes the contribution of communitarianism to locals/visitors interactions, approaches intercultural interaction in conditions of equality between the two interacting groups and adopts a socio-anthropological perspective to elucidate culture, tourism, mobility, and governance as pillars of territorial development.Keywords: Culture, locals/visitors interactions, communitarianism, tourism, intercultural interaction, mobilities, stakeholders, territorial governance, territorial development, Byblos, Baalbek, Lebanon
Trois essais en compétition bancaire et en titrisation des crédits au sein des banques commerciales by Antonio Bayeh( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This PhD dissertation represents a first empirical assessment of the implications of the interaction between banking competition and securitization on efficiency, risk, and capital structure of US commercial banks United States. Precisely, the main objective of this PhD dissertation is to answer the following questions: 1) What is the impact of competition and securitization, separately and jointly, on bank efficiency? 2) Does securitization reduce bank risk under competitive pressure? 3) What are the implications of the interaction between competition and securitization on bank capital structure? The development of these questions is motivated by the rapid growth of securitization, the evolution of bank competition through various US bank regulations, the ongoing debate between proponents and criticizers of competition and securitization; and the novelty of these topics among academics and practitioners. After implementing a propensity score matching technique, the first chapter suggests that securitization significantly increases bank efficiency as measured by the Stochastic Frontier Approach (SFA). This positive impact appears to be more pronounced in competitive banking markets. In the second chapter, we use fixed-effects model through which securitization is found to have a negative impact on bank risk, particularly and surprisingly during the recent financial crisis, but only if banks highly securitize loans in competitive markets. The third chapter argues that banking competition could be considered a channel that explains how securitization significantly influences US commercial banks' capital structure. Specifically, deeper investigations, introduced by the quantile regression, show that less-capitalized banks that highly securitize loans in competitive markets are more likely to increase their overall capital ratios, whereas a decrease in these ratios is reported for highly-capitalized banks. Providing several empirical and operational contributions as well as important managerial implications and policy recommendations, this PhD dissertation emphasizes the importance of considering a careful banking regulation on securitization that takes into account the heterogeneous responses of bank capitalization, the different reactions of various securitized loans, and the overall significant effect of US banking market structure

La proximité comme levier d'aménagement et de développement territorial : Le cas des maisons d'hôtes au Liban by Rayan Haidar ahmad( )

1 edition published in 2019 in French and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rural tourism has been rapidly developing in recent years as tourists, whether internal or external, seek places of rest and escape from cities and daily stress. They find their holiday destination villages where they can enjoy rest, fresh air, good healthy food as well as an easily accessible sport: hiking.To ensure a good stay for tourists, we took on the issue of accommodations in guesthouses. This activity is recent but the work is still unplanned. The tourism ministry is aware of this problem. We were committed to studying this hosting activity in order to present solutions that can develop the work of guesthouses and subsequently the development of rural tourism.An inquiry was made with forty-four guesthouses spread over the Lebanese territory. We raised their problems and treated it with a thorough study of geographical, organizational and institutional proximity.The processing of the data collected by the interviews using the SPSS software allowed us to test both hypotheses. H1: the proximity can answer the problems of organization and performance of the houses of hostsH2: The touristification of local resources in rural villages contributes to the development of the guesthouse sector and subsequently territorial development.We conclude from our research that the two extremes of proximity constitute a handicap that can slow activity in guesthouses. In addition, independent guesthouses relatively work in an unsystematic way and subsequently the service produced does not meet the qualities requested by tourists. Finally, an intermediate situation of proximity will be able to improve the work in the guesthouses.Recommendations in terms of regional planning have been identified and which aim to ensure better working track for guesthouses.Keywords:Guesthouses, Proximity, Territorial development, Planning, Tourism
