Nepotism is the practice by a family member or close associate of an organization of favoring other members of that group over more qualified outsiders for appointments to positions of influence and responsibility, especially to the exclusion of persons not related to the group. Most jurisdictions regard nepotism as a conflict of interest. Nepotism can also refer to particular appointments, such as those awarded to family members or close associates regardless of merit or qualification.
