  4. 4. It Takes Two to Tango: Perceptions and Motivations Towards Campaign Clientelism in Zambia

    University essay from Lunds universitet/Graduate School

    Author : Fubu Ngubu; [2023]
    Keywords : Keywords: Campaign clientelism; Information theory; mixed methods; System justification theory; Zambia.; Social Sciences;

    Abstract : Various studies on clientelism usually start from a common puzzle: Why is campaign clientelism widely practised by politicians even when they have no means of ensuring reciprocity from the voters? Similarly, why is campaign clientelism widespread amongst voters despite its numerous negative consequences on societies, democracy, and development? These puzzles have motivated my research, where I attempt to understand the perceptions and motivations of politicians and voters towards campaign clientelism in Zambia. To address the research question, two forms of data collection methods were utilised, in-depth interviews with politicians at the local level and a survey of voters in densely populated areas (Lusaka and Kitwe).
