Abstract [en]

Sectarianism involves governance and two factions fighting over politics, religion, and culture. Depending on the political atmosphere and which of her groups is more dominant, prejudice, discrimination, or hostility might occur. This is a severe issue to be tackled, particularly in Lebanon which raises the need for its exploration under a selected factor which is the human security level. Accordingly, this research aims to explore the tendency toward sectarianism among Lebanese people in two geographical areas taking into consideration the human security level in each region: North Lebanon, which has a generally lower level of human security, and the Emirate, which has higher security levels. Moreover, the study uses voting behavior to measure sectarianism relating this to the mentioned human security levels as a factor that affects people's propensity for sectarianism.The study employs a quantitative approach of a sample of 160 individuals, evenly split across regions was analyzed using frequency analysis. The study found that sectarian inclinations might be linked to the absence of human security in Lebanon and the necessity for Lebanese residents to find alternative sources for their fundamental needs, answering the research question. Future studies should concentrate on increasing human security in Lebanon to reduce sectarianism.
